NARI Report: What Do Older People Want From Their Healthcare?

The National Ageing Research Institute (NARI) has released a report What Do Older People Want from Their Healthcare?

Funded by the Victorian Department of Health, the report is the result of a survey of 300 older Victorians between April 2019 to February 2020.

Some of the key findings of the Report are:

  • 75% of respondents said living independently in their own home for as long as possible was a top priority;
  • Only 16% of the respondents felt that their caring roles were supported by others and/or services;
  • Trust in the Aged Care System is low;
  • Of the respondents, 22% indicated that they didn’t understand the My Aged Care system;
  • 41% considered Aged Care facilities/homes to be depressing places.

The full report can be accessed on the NARI website.

If you, or someone you know is experiencing elder abuse, help is available through our confidential helpline on 1300 368 821.

If it is an emergency, call 000.
