Re-design of Aged Care Environments is Key to Improved Care Quality and Cost Effective Reform of Aged and Health System Care

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Health and aged care reforms for treating and caring for aged populations, including those with dementia, are increasingly being called for internationally in the context of a threefold increase in numbers associated with the ageing of baby boomers projected from 2010 to 2050 [1, 2, 3, 4]. In this commentary we consider the importance of environmental versus pharmacological solutions, and the right policy balance of community and care based environmental strategies to enable successful budget constrained ageing across health and aged care systems [3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9].
