This bulletin examines peoples use of aged care services in the 8 years before death, using the cohort of 116,481 people who died in 2010–11 aged at least 65. Overall, 80% of these people had used aged care in the 8 years before death, and three-fifths were aged care clients when they died. Just under half of the cohort began using aged care more than 4 years before their death.
