Many jobs can feel the same day in, day out. That’s where aged care work differs. You can go from helping provide medications to assisting with activities of daily living to facilitating social gatherings – and the list goes on! Aged care can be provided to people who require assistance in their own home and those who need more ongoing or focused support in a care facility. The people you work with and care for are interesting and multifaceted, and the two-way connection between you can bring learning, understanding, growth, and gratitude.

Aged Care in Campbelltown & Across Australia

A common desire among Australians is to maintain their independence, living in their own homes for as long as possible. In your role as an aged care worker, you can play a vital part in making this achievable.

Aged care services can involve long and short-term support in a person’s home. Full-time care in a facility or residential care home may eventually be required for some individuals, and this can be highly beneficial for them and their families.

In the span of 2019 to 2020, more than one million Australians availed care services, indicating the significant proportion of the elderly population. This encompassed diverse services and roles. For example, close to 840,000 individuals received home support via the Commonwealth Home Support Programme, and nearly 245,000 people were housed as permanent residents in aged care facilities.

The growing population of people over sixty-five in Australia has created a significant demand for support workers. In 2020, the Commonwealth Home Support Programme employed 76,096 workers, while the Residential Aged Care sector had a workforce of 277,671. The ratio of elderly individuals needing care to the number of available workers highlights the high demand for support workers.
