House and Home: Pathways and alternatives to residential aged care.


Most people want to age in their own home. Community aged care supports this need, preserving residential care for when in-home support is insufficient. This study follows a large group of women as they age from their 70’s through their 80’s and looks at changes in housing, social and living arrangements over time, how these changes correspond to health and care needs, the care services and support that women living independently in the community receive, and whether and when women move into residential aged care.
