Abstract

This study explores the experiences and challenges of socially isolated older people in navigating and accessing the health care system. Understanding the specific issues confronting these individuals will inform the development of more appropriate models of community-based aged care. An extensive literature review identified many areas of research into social isolation of the older person, but minimal research was located that dealt specifically with how this cohort accesses and navigates the health care system.
