Infographic about people living in aged residential care

31,600 New Zealanders live in aged residential care. A new infographic shows what else we know about them, thanks to interRAI, the comprehensive assessment system used in aged residential care.

Throughout New Zealand, assessors in DHBs and in aged residential care facilities use the standardised interRAI assessment instrument to help determine which level of support is required for clients and residents over 65 years old. The data is then aggregated to provide information at provider, regional and national level. 

This infographic is based on 72,000 assessments of people living in aged residential care in New Zealand.
