Abstract

<p>The objectives of the proposed survey are: <p><p><p><li>to establish whether self-funded people who are admitted to residential care differ significantly in terms of financial assets and informal support from elderly people in private households; <p><p><p><li>to estimate expected length of stay of privately-funded residents; <p><p><p><li>to establish the extent to which self-financed residents are admitted at levels of dependency that might have been maintained in the community; <p><p><p><li>to investigate the process of admission and whether those people with lower levels of dependency are admitted through choice or lack of access to appropriate alternatives; <p><p><p><li>to investigate factors affecting fees paid (choice of home, the contractual arrangements and decision making process<p><p>for fee setting); and <p><p><p><li>to identify the level of receipt by all residents of non-means tested benefits. <p><p><p>The aims of the feasibility survey were: <p><p><p><li>to identify the data that needs to be collected; <p><p><p><li>to establish an appropriate methodology or options for collecting data; <p><p><p><li>to identify the size of the sample required; <p><p><p><li>to cost the different options; and <p><p><p><li>to identify the time scale associated with each option.
