An Australian systematic review investigated the effectiveness of community-based care interventions for the elderly in terms of their role in avoiding or delaying admission to residential care. It was found that multi-factorial, individualised community programmes are more effective, while “minimal” single-focus interventions are less effective, at helping older people to remain living in their own homes.
