3.2 Trends Unmet demand up 33% between the 2009 and 2012 SDAC – 15.8% or 121,660 carers Unmet demand for respite care increases with age: – > 65 the unmet demand is 16.9%, – > 75 it is 19.61% (compared to general unmet demand in 2009 of 11.8%) Respite is already targeted to higher dependency: – Respite use increases dramatically (60% of respite use is for carers < 40 hours of care a week). But respite users have higher wellness and satisfaction deficits: – indicating need for more support (significantly more angry, dissatisfied, weary, worried or depressed, stressed related illness) 2/3s of unmet demand in 2012 was from those who have never had access to respite. – 12% of carers have never used respite because the primary recipient (aged person) doesn’t want to use it (2012) – 10% of those who don’t use respite are simply not aware of their entitlements or what services are available (2012)
