This is administrative by product data for the Community Aged Care Packages (CACP) Program, Extended Aged Care at Home (EACH) packages and EACH-DEMENTIA (EACHD), and the Transition Care Packages Program. These are all programs designed to enable frail older people with complex care needs to continue living in the community. This is the source of the data for the publication by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) on CACP which has its origins in CACP reporting. Transition care is Commonwealth/State funded but other programs receive recurrent Commonwealth funding.

Home and Community Care (HACC) is reported annually by the Department of Health and Aged Care and reports are available on their website. The Institute receives a copy of the annual HACC MDS.
