Thank you for agreeing to participate in the research study titled ‘Hungarians in Australia - Expectations of Aged Care Services’.

We need your help to plan for future aged care services for Hungarians in Australia and by completing this survey you will be providing us with valuable information about whether there will be a need for Hungarian specific aged care services in the future and what you believe the need for service will look like.

St Elizabeth Home is a 114 bed residential aged care home located in Dean Park and was established in 1967 to provide care to ageing Hungarians in Australia under the auspices of the Trustees of the Hungarian Catholic Community.
