Résumé :

Ce rapport de l'Australian Institute of Health and Welfare analyse jusqu'à quel point la santé et l'utilisation des services de santé par les personnes âgées peuvent être affectés par les problèmes de démence. Le rapport met l'accent sur la prévalence et l'incidence de la démence dans la population, l'impact sur les services de santé et les coûts qui y sont reliés.

This study is concerned with projecting the future demand for and supply of informal carers of older persons (persons aged 65 years and over) in Australia. The motivation for study is the co-existence of two continuing trends-the ageing of Australia's population and a shift in the balance of care, from formal care provided in institutions to informal care provided in homes. The projections were undertaken using a purpose built model, based on ABS population and household projections, and information on the probability of needing and providing care, based on the ABS Disability, Ageing and Carers survey. The study projected a significant increase in the numbers of older persons likely to need informal care in Australia between 2001 and 2031 along with a smaller increase in the numbers likely to be carers. At the same time shifts in the composition of the disabled and carers populations were also projected: both being characterised by a greater concentration of the elderly.

Abstract
Over the past few years Australia?s demographic pattern and the ageing population has become a major public policy issue, which is likely to be a focus of attention for many years to come as the changes and full implications are felt. The debate so far has largely concentrated on sustaining our economic growth and living standards; managing the pressure on public finances, particularly in relation to spending on health, aged care and pension payments; and encouraging individuals to save more to fund their own retirement and reduce the demand on the public purse now and in the future. This study by the National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling adds a new dimension to the debate by exploring not only the demand for care but contrasting it to the likely supply of informal care over the next 30 years.
