Younger people with disability in residential aged care program : report on the 2008-09 minimum data set

Australian Institute of Health and Welfare,

Online Resources

2010

This report presents information on the people who were provided with support under Younger People with Disability in Residential

Aged Care (YPIRAC)

program and the services they accessed during the

2008–09 reporting period (1 July 2008—30 June 2009). The YPIRAC aims to reduce the number of people with disability aged less than 65 who live in residential aged care.

Of all YPIRAC service users in 2008–09, nearly 3 in 10 (234) were offered alternative

accommodation and, of these, over half (124) moved to alternative accommodation such as

private residences, domestic-scale supported living facilities and supported accommodation.

Nearly two-thirds of YPIRAC service users received a support services package in 2008–09,

and 15% of all service users received both alternative accommodation and support services.
