'It plays a preventive health role and reduces demand on health services. It enables effective and efficient delivery of community care services and it facilitates social participation.'
'Like other long-time residents, he has watched the suburb's gradual change with the influx of professional workers looking for housing close to the city.'
'The Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute report has studied the effects of gentrification and its effects on the community, interviewing 30 people who had to move suburbs because of gentrification pressures.'
'An overhaul recommended for the fledgling aged-care sector has been labelled "HECS for the elderly" after calling on older people to pay for a greater slice of their care.'
'A study on gentrification has found the suburb of Northcote and the area around Maribyrnong have experienced the most rapid gentrification in Melbourne, causing rents and house prices to skyrocket, and poorer households to move out.'
'The Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) and the Benevolent Society (Ben Soc) wants you to help them tackle the housing and planning challenges of the nationís ageing population, at its one day symposium in Sydney on Friday 25 February.'
'A recent study by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute found while home ownership levels were sitting around 70 per cent, the relatively low number of young people entering the market would significantly reduce the level in future.'

'The new study, for the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute, draws attention to the damaging consequences of gentrification for neighbourhoods, and for the people forced to move on.'
'These concerns are backed up by a recent report by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute, which found that in growth areas of Melbourne 91.1 per cent of new dwellings had three or more bedrooms.'
