The Benevolent Society

This publication, produced in collaboration with the Aged Services Unit of Southern Cross University,  is the sixth in The Benevolent Society's series of Community Aged Care Research to Practice Briefings. These briefings are designed to make it easier for community aged care workers and managers to have access to the latest research evidence on issues affecting their day-to-day work with older people, in a practical and accessible format. The briefing paper summarises key Australian and international research about new approaches to community aged care that focus on re-establishing daily living skills and community connections of older people, rather than on traditional goals of ‘maintenance’ and ‘support’.
