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 Campsie & Across Australia

Most people in Australia wish to remain living as independently as possible in their own homes for as long as it is feasible. As an aged care worker, you can help this become a reality.

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.

Between 2019 and 2020, over a million individuals in Australia received care, highlighting the substantial elderly population. Various services and roles were involved in this process. For instance, around 840,000 individuals benefited from the Commonwealth Home Support Programme, and about 245,000 people were permanent residents in aged care facilities.

Due to the increasing size of the older demographic, which is generally classed as people over the age of sixty-five, support workers are in great demand. In 2020, the Commonwealth Home Support Programme had 76,096 workers, and the Residential Aged Care sector had 277,671 workers. When looking at the numbers of elderly people requiring care in relation to the number of workers, it is clear that support workers are in high demand.
