Ageing in place: before and after the 1997 aged care reforms

Diane GIBSON, F Rowland, Peter Braun, P Angus

Research output: Book/ReportReports


Central to this paper are the changes that were made to combine the two tiers (nursing homes and hostels) of the residential aged care system under the restructuring of the system in October 1997. To explore the extent to which ageing in place has happened since 1997, this paper focuses on changes in services which were formerly hostel-type services prior to the reforms.
