Examining a core assumption of policy and services for older Indigenous Australians

 

Overview

This project looked at ageing among Indigenous people to see if the characteristics of ageing were similar for Indigenous and non-Indigenous populations, but occurring at younger ages among Indigenous people due to their younger age structure. The project aimed to consider the implications of the research results for aged care policies.
