Community aged care assessment: results from a national field trial

Journal Article


Abstract


  • AIMS: An aged care assessment suite to enable elderly people to

    access community aged care services was redesigned for national

    application and field tested across Australia (N = 1,011). A 3-tiered

    model for assessment related to the need for services underpinned the

    assessment battery: * Level 1—for those requiring basic services such

    as domestic assistance or transport etc.; * Level 2—for those

    requiring more substantial use of services including elements of

    personal care; * Level 3—for those requiring a comprehensive clinical

    assessment to obtain higher levels of care. The field trial was

    concerned with the first two levels of assessment and referral to a

    Level 3 agency.
