Aged care in Australia : conflicting issues
MetadataShow full item record
For conventional reasons those aged 65 or more are regarded as constituting our population of elderly persons. 9.7% of Australia's population is aged 65 or more. Most are not in the labour force and thus rely for their security on past investments; government pensions and benefits and services; and their families. Some are fortunate in having a combination of all three, others survive on one or two of these.
