Kenyon P, D’Souza M. (2017) North West ageing and aged care strategy. Commonwealth of Australia, Regional Development Australia - Pilbara. WA.
Low population density and remote locations pose significant barriers to most ageing and aged care options. Accessible services and consumer choices are generally limited. Simply articulated, under current circumstances and arrangements, most North West residents (Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal residents) not only have to leave their homes, but indeed their community, country and the region if they wish or are required to access many aged care services.
