Recommended long term care settings following aged care assessments in Australia

Marijan Jukic, Jeromey B Temple
2018 PLoS ONE  
The vast majority (94%) of recommended long-term care settings were for private residences (54%) or residential care (40%).  ...  Persons assessed in a setting other than a private residence were unlikely to have a recommended setting for a private residence.  ...  For example, 42% of those with a residential care RLTC setting have an ADL assistance need for body movements compared with under 20% of those in a private residence setting.  ...
