Abstract

For-profit age care facilities are the most expensive residential aged care option, but researchers have found that less-expensive, government owned facilities provide higher quality care. In the article below, Dr Ou Yang, Professor Anthony Scott, Associate Professor Jongsay Yong, and Professor Yuting Zhang of the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research outline the findings of their study examining the prices and quality of care provided by residential aged care homes in Australia.
