Aged Care in Penrith & Across Australia
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.
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.
