Aged Care in Coonabarabran & Across Australia

Many Australians aspire to sustain their independent lifestyle in their own homes for as long as practicable. As an aged care worker, you can contribute significantly to fulfilling this aspiration.

Aged care services can comprise both long and short-term support within an individual’s home. For some, there might be a necessity for full-time care in a residential care home or facility, which can be greatly beneficial to the individuals 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.

Given the rise in the population aged sixty-five and above, there is a significant demand for support workers. In 2020, the Commonwealth Home Support Programme had 76,096 employees, and the Residential Aged Care sector had 277,671. Considering the number of elderly people requiring care against the number of workers, the high demand for support workers becomes evident.
