Programs for the Elderly (Australia)

While there is no publicly available information to fully answer your question, we've used the available data to pull together the following key findings: Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP), Home Care Packages Program, Veterans’ Home Care , National Aboriginal And Torres Strait Islander Flexible Aged Care Program And Short-term Restorative Care Programme.
Below you'll find an outline of our research methodology to better understand why the information you've requested is publicly unavailable, as well as a deep dive into our findings.

METHODOLOGY

STRATEGY 1: NATIONAL PUBLIC PROGRAMS/INITIATIVES

We started the research by first looking for any public programs that help the elderly stay longer at home through official Australian government sources. We came across the official website of the Department of Health — Australian Government, that provides a list of all its programs for the elderly population on a national level. The web page included only 2 programs/initiatives namely, Commonwealth Home Support Programme and Home Care Packages that were available for the general population. We conducted further research to find additional information on the programs.

Further, We came across a report which mentioned additional programs such as Veterans’ programs and provided details on the same, however, this program was specific to veterans and not the general Australian population. In addition, We came across another government web page that provided details on the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flexible Aged Care Program, however, again, this program was aimed towards a specific community and was not available for the general Australian population. Although these programs were community specific, they are public programs that are available in Australia that enables the elderly to stay longer at home.

Further, We also came across another program Short-Term Restorative Care Programme that provides time-limited home care to the elderly population in Australia.

STRATEGY 2: STATE/CITYWIDE PUBLIC PROGRAMS/INITIATIVES

Further, We search for any state or citywide public programs towards enabling the elderly to stay at home for longer. We came across a guide that mentioned all the state home care services operated through the CHSP to help the elderly stay independent in their community thereby, confirming that the only public programs/initiatives for home care in Australia are run on a national level.

STRATEGY 3: AGED/ELDERLY ORGANIZATIONS, ASSOCIATIONS AND FORUMS

Since the government sources only provided information on public programs, We searched for any private programs through various aged/elderly organizations, associations, and forums. After going through various sources such as Aged Care Guide, COTA Australia and Expat Focus, the only information obtained was about the programs available to the public. The rest of the options provided in these sources included private services and personal networks. Since these options did not qualify as a program or initiative, these were not included in the findings.

STRATEGY 4: IN-HOME CARE PROVIDERS:

Further, We searched through the websites of in-home care providers for the elderly in Australia. The idea here was to check for any provider that is self-funded or is funded by any other group of organizations thereby making it a program/initiative. However, all of such providers including but not limited to Care Connect, Australian Unity and Community Home Care were funded by the public programs and only acted as local service providers as opposed to programs/initiatives.

STRATEGY 5: NEWS ARTICLES PRESS RELEASE ON EXTERNAL MEDIA:

Finally, We searched through news articles and press releases on external media for any information on private programs/initiatives towards elderly home care. The idea here was to find any news or commentary on any private organization funding a program that would enable the elderly to stay at home longer. After an exhaustive search through various leading news publications including but not limited to ABC, The Guardian, 9News and Age Care Insight, among others, most of the news articles found only provided information on the public programs/initiatives earlier found. None of the news articles or press releases provided any information on any private program/initiative.

Thereby, We concluded that there are only a limited number of public programs available in Australia and no private programs are available.

WHAT INFORMATION WAS AVAILABLE

Information on 2 public programs available for general population available in Australia
Information on 3 other community-specific or time-limited programs available in Australia

WHAT INFORMATION WAS NOT AVAILABLE

Any information on additional 3 public programs/initiatives
Any information on private programs/initiatives

WHY INFORMATION WHICH WAS NOT AVAILABLE PRE-COMPILED, COULDN'T BE TRIANGULATED?

One of the probable reasons for the unavailability of such information could be that there are only public programs available which are only limited to 5 as commissioned by the government of Australia. It could also be possible that there are community-based private programs, however, due to the small size and limited capacity, their details are not widely available in the public domain.

Since we were only able to provide five programs/initiatives in Australia, this has been submitted as a client update. We have summarized the insights below and fill the details in the attached spreadsheet (Source 1).

FINDINGS

Five programs or initiatives that help the elderly stay at home longer in Australia include Commonwealth Home Support Programme; Home Care Packages Program; Veterans’ programs; National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flexible Aged Care Program; and Short-Term Restorative Care Programme.

Programs for the Elderly (Norway)

We were able to find eight programs and initiatives associated with the elderly involving Norway. They are Road Ahead 2, Meal Friend, Everyday Coping, Hovos, SUSTAIN, Horizon2020, SENIORS, EMPATHIC Research & Innovation, and LIFEBOTS Exchange. Road Ahead 2 is a two-year project testing models and services for people with dementia. SUSTAIN was an EU project that promoted and improved the integrated care of elderly individuals that involved Norway’s Holistic Patient Care at Home and Everyday Rehabilitation at Home. And LIFEBOTS Exchange is a Horizon 2020- Norges Teknisk-Naturvitenskapelige Universitet NTNU project researching the field of social robotics. The entire project is here.

Methodology

We began our inquiry looking for any projects, programs, and initiatives involving elderly assistance in Norway. We came across the EU’s Horizon2020 initiative in the course of research. Though Norway is not a part of the EU, it became one of the first non-EU countries to join Horizon2020 in 2014. We have included that initiative’s projects in this list for this reason.

Programs for the Elderly (Norway)


Road Ahead 2

The Road Ahead 2 is a two-year project testing models and services for people with dementia. One of the program's goals is to ensure a greater follow up on the physical adaptation, welfare technology, and aids for dementia patients living at home. The project's overall goal is to ensure that dementia patients living at home get the necessary health care and support they need. Ultimately, the project wants to ensure that these individuals will be able to live their best lives at home for as long as possible.

Meal Friend

This project arose in response to studies that indicated malnutrition and increased morbidity in older, single people. This project is one of the alternative solutions developed to meet this healthcare need. The project focused on the nutrition and activity of elderly people living at home and living alone. Volunteers from the village's women's team facilitated meal experiences for the elderly with short-lived food and agricultural products.

Everyday Coping

This program provides training not only for people with functional loss who experience difficulty with their daily and those already receiving care services; it is also for those employees in the healthcare services. The program has multiple implementation models. Some municipalities use a specialist model where a separate team is set up that draws out, maps, and conducts training and follow-up. Other municipalities use an integrated model that provides a greater basis for everyday maintenance involving the entire service.

Hovos

Hovos is, among other things, a service that connects individuals (e.g., travelers) searching for work and help exchanges with potential hosts. One of Hovos’s work and help exchange programs involves seniors hosting volunteers that provide everyday help (e.g., shopping, medication pick-ups, dog walking, et al.) and company. In return, hosts provide volunteers with accommodation, and the volunteer has the opportunity to experience a foreign culture (e.g., sample the local cooking, explore city attractions, and the like).

SUSTAIN

An EU project that looked to promote and improve the integrated care for elderly individuals living at home with multiple health and social care needs. Norway was one of seven European countries that participated in the project. Norway’s Holistic Patient Care at Home (a general care pathway assisting patients/services users navigating Norway’s health and social care system) and Everyday Rehabilitation at Home (a program promoting mastery and independence in users’ daily living activities) were part of Norway’s collaboration with SUSTAIN. Exploratory case studies determined that Norway’s initiatives performed well in terms of health staff interactions and knowledge, work environments, and the systematic discharge of activities.

Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 is a series of research programs; its “Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing [sic]” segment looks to invest over €2 billion in research and innovation for better health for everyone; keeping older people active and independent for longer; and supporting the development of new, safer and more effective interventions. Additionally, research and innovation within this segment seeks to improve understanding of the causes and mechanisms underlying health, healthy aging, and disease. The programs seek improvements in health monitoring to prevent, detect, treat, and manage diseases. The segment will also support testing and demonstrating new models and tools for healthcare delivery.

SENIORS

SENIORS (Safety-Enhanced Innovations for Older Road Users) is a Horizon2020 project that seeks to improve elderly individuals’ safe mobility using an integrated approach and empirical knowledge, which includes their main modes of transport and particularities. The project’s objectives include investigating and assessing injury reduction through innovative tools and safety systems purpose-designed for the elderly as both car occupants and external road users (i.e., pedestrians, cyclists, e-bike riders, et al.). The project’s short term impact on elderly road safety includes: Improving the protection of elderly road users in an integrated approach; identification of the differences in dynamics in the pre-crash and crash phase; identification of the elderly’s anthropometric and injury mechanism peculiarities; development and optimization of systems (i.e., test tools, procedures, and assessment methods) with special regard to the elderly; and transfer of knowledge and results through cooperation with relevant entities (e.g., regulatory, consumer, and insurance bodies).

EMPATHIC Research & Innovation

Another Horizon2020 project, the Empathic Research & Innovation project researches, innovates, explores, and validates new paradigms and platforms. The project’s overarching goal is to lay the design foundation for future generations of "Personalised [sic] Virtual Coaches" to facilitate the independence of the elderly. The current phase of the project focuses on innovative multimodal analytics, adaptive spoken dialogue systems, and natural language interfaces.

LIFEBOTS Exchange

This is a Horizon2020 project in coordination with Norway’s Norges Teknisk-Naturvitenskapelige Universitet NTNU. The project seeks to enhance cross-sector, international, and interdisciplinary collaboration in the area of social robotics. The project is looking at social robotic technology for care purposes inspired by a WHO projection of a 12.9 million gap in healthcare professionals by 2035 in the face of an aging population across the globe. One of the areas the project will research is what place social robots can have in homes and elderly homes.

Conclusion

We were able to find eight programs and initiatives associated with the elderly involving Norway. They are Road Ahead 2, Meal Friend, Everyday Coping, Hovos, SUSTAIN, Horizon2020, SENIORS, EMPATHIC Research & Innovation, and LIFEBOTS Exchange. Road Ahead 2 is a two-year project testing models and services for people with dementia. SUSTAIN was an EU project that promoted and improved the integrated care of elderly individuals that involved Norway’s Holistic Patient Care at Home and Everyday Rehabilitation at Home. And LIFEBOTS Exchange is a Horizon 2020- Norges Teknisk-Naturvitenskapelige Universitet NTNU project researching the field of social robotics.

Programs for the Elderly (Denmark)

In the Denmark tab of the attached spreadsheet, we have provided eight programs or initiatives that provide assistance to elderly citizens of Denmark so that they can live in their own homes for as long as possible. Because of Denmark's robust welfare system, many of the programs detailed are publicly-funded, such as the home help (hjemmehjaelp) program. Nonetheless, we also provided several private companies that offer additional services on top of those offered by the Danish government, such as Altiden, which provides home care (hjemmepleje) services. In column A, we described each program or company in English, providing a Danish translation in parentheses, as relevant.
