In their own homes: challenges of caring for low income older Australians


Author: Angley, P.
Type: Journal Article
Year: 2004


In 2002, The Myer Foundation released 2020: A vision for aged care in Australia, which paints a picture of the aged care system that is thought to be necessary to meet demand for services by 2020 and includes a five-point plan to achieve this vision. Of particular interest to the Brotherhood of St Laurence is how older people on low incomes with few assets will fare, especially as there is a suggestion in the report that older Australians should fund a larger share of the cost of their care in the future. The author examines the five recommendations in this context. (non-author abstract)
