Sample text

It examines a range of issues affecting older people now and into the future to provide a foundation on which to develop new policies and enable individuals to make decisions as they age. The National Strategy provides a framework for building on the current performance as well as focusing the nation on meeting challenges and achieving positive outcomes in the future. Development of the National Strategy is overseen by a Ministerial Reference Group headed by the Federal Minister for Aged Care. Consultation with key stakeholders is needed to ensure that the long-term directions set by the National Strategy are grounded in the community.

C. The burden of care-giving As countries continue to improve public provision of health care services to their older populations, family members are currently the main providers of health care to older individuals. Family care-givers tend to be women with childcare responsibilities. For example, in Taiwan Province of China, 72 per cent of primary care-givers are females, 85 per cent are married, and over 90 per cent live with the older disabled person (Bartlett and Wu, 2000). The burden and stress of giving care are very real to the (mainly female) individuals that suffer from the inability or stress of having to care for an older disabled person and children in the household.
