Aged Care Courses

As an industry primarily led by demographics, the demand for aged care workers within Australia has seen a recent increase as life expectancy has risen. Over 6.1 million Australians are now considered as elderly, with around 366,000 of those permanently living in retirement villages or residential aged-care facilities. Although a primary part of the industry, aged care work does not only focus on those living within specialised units. Assistance is provided across the entire spectrum of dependency, with many elderly people choosing to stay in their own homes, cared for by a mobile aged care worker. Work can vary from assisting with day-to-day tasks and enforcing a positive well being, to caring for those in need of specialist care possessing a much higher dependency, such as those suffering from dementia. There are a number of regulations in place to ensure the safety and happiness of both the elderly and the aged care workers, which each aged care worker must enforce and obtain the relevant qualifications to implement.
