Abstract

Geographic characteristics and social conditions in rural and remote areas often
mean greater difficulty and costs in terms of providing aged care services. This, in
turn, inevitably causes concern over spatial equity in the distribution of aged care
services. This paper aims to address the spatial equity issue by analysing aged care
services (both residential and community-based aged care services) by four
geographic categories: capital cities, other metropolitan areas, rural areas and
remote areas. Nursing home type patients, multi-purpose services and services
approved under the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Aged Care Strategy are
included in the analysis in order to get a more complete picture of available
resources.
