Project Description

This project aims to inform the development of adequate and appropriate respite care options to support people with dementia and their carers and families by providing robust national data.

The project will analyse take-up rates of aged care assessment team (ACAT) recommendations and approvals for residential respite care by people with dementia compared to those without dementia using linked data from ACATs and residential aged care.

The project will examine factors which may affect take-up rates including carer availability, physical functioning, age, sex, CALD status, take-up of other program support (e.g. CACPs, EACH packages, HACC) and supply of residential respite care.
