According to an Australian Government source in 2019, the average age of a person moving into a Residential Aged Care is 82 for men and 84 for women. However, people need some sort of support before that age.
Australian Institute of Health and Welfare indicates that a person currently aged 65 could expect 17-25% of their remaining years to be living with a core and profound disability. This is why people really need a plan, making a choice that suits their needs and goals.
