Summary

Some 61,300 people first entered permanent residential aged care (PRAC) in 2013–14. While they used over 1,000 different combinations of other aged care in the preceding years, the most common pathway (used by 1 in 4 people) was through Home and Community Care (HACC). Many pathways showed a similar pattern of moving ‘up’ to progressively higher levels of support.
