Knowledge of community services is clearly an important determinant of their use by the frail or disabled elderly. This paper describes the levels of knowledge amongst the aged in Sydney, and explores the pathways by which information is disseminated. Awareness of community services was quite limited amongst the sample studied. Many of the elderly may be inadequately informed of services which could serve as alternatives to institutional care. -Author
