Entry Period for Residential Aged Care provides a study at both the bivaruate and multivariate levels of the elapsed time between an aged care assessment being undertaken to determine eligibility for residential aged care services and actual entry to residential aged care.The report examines and rejects the evidence for using entry period as a proxy for waiting time, and by implication, as a measure of the accessibility of residential aged care services.The report will be of particular interest to aged care service providers, policy makers and those responsible for planning aged care services, as well as researchers interested in the aged care field.
