Senator Cormann asked the Minister representing the Minister for Ageing, upon notice, on 29 July 2009:

For each financial year from 2000-01 to 2008-09:

(1)   What were the vacancy rates in government funded residential aged care services for:

(a)   each state and territory; and

(b)   each aged care planning region.

(2)   What was the average waiting time for access to an aged care placement after a person was assessed as requiring residential aged care for:

(a)   each state and territory; and

(b)   each aged care planning region.

(3)   How many persons waited a period of 90 days or longer to receive a residential aged care placement in:

(a)   each state and territory; and

(b)   each aged care planning region.


Senator Ludwig (Special Minister of State and Cabinet Secretary) —The Minister for Ageing has provided the following answer to the honourable senator’s question:

(1)   The vacancy rates in Commonwealth funded residential aged care services for each state and territory and planning region between 2000-01 and 2008-09 are presented in Tables 1a and 1b (below). Note that the 2008-09 data is preliminary and subject to revision.

(2)   The Department collects information on the time between when a care recipient receives approval to enter residential care from an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) and when they actually enter residential care (‘Entry period’). Data on average entry periods for first permanent admissions in each state and territory and planning region between 2000-01 and 2008-09 are presented in Tables 2a and 2b (below). Note that the 2008-09 data is preliminary and subject to revision. The data needs to be interpreted with care as a person’s ability and desire to enter care after being approved for that care by an ACAT depends on a number of factors. Some people may not yet have decided to enter care at the time of seeking an ACAT assessment. Many take time to visit different aged care homes and arrange their affairs before moving into their preferred aged care home. In general people entering low care take longer to decide on their preferred home than those entering high care. It is also important to note that many of these older people receive care through the Home and Community Care program, Veterans’ Home Care, packaged community care or respite care whilst assessing their residential care options.

(3)   The number of admissions with an entry period of 90 days or more for each state and territory and planning region between 2000-01 and 2008-09 are presented in Tables 3a and 3b (below). Note that the 2008-09 data is preliminary and subject to revision. Again, these numbers need to be interpreted with care as there could be a number of reasons for the time between receiving ACAT approval and entering care.
