Aged Care in Wallsend & 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 range from long to short-term support provided in a person’s own home. Some individuals may eventually need full-time care in a residential care home or facility, a change that can offer significant benefits to them and their families.

During 2019 and 2020, care was provided to over a million people in Australia, signifying the considerable elderly population. This care entailed various services and roles. For instance, approximately 840,000 individuals accessed home support through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme, while about 245,000 people lived as 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.
