Aged care is an integral part of a healthy community

Getting old shouldn’t necessarily mean there is a direct decline in the quality of life. Additional funding by the Govt to enable people to live in their homes longer has created strong demand for qualified workers in this sector to provide individual support in a residential setting.
A boom in the number of Aged Care services has also created increased demand for qualified carers in community care facilities making this one of the fastest growing career pathways in Australia.

80,000 new aged care workers are needed

The Government’s new Aged Care roadmap has identified the need for additional aged care services across all areas and recognises that there is an extreme skills shortage issue in Australia. 

The Govt, has prioritised funding for the delivery of Aged Care training in all states and need to deliver an additional 80,000 aged care specialists into the network to support current needs.
