Ageing, Home & Community

With the Baby Boomer’s approaching retirement age, demand for Aged Care Workers is becoming critical. Over four million people were born in Australia between 1946 and 1961. Living longer than any previous generation due to advances in medical science, they will once again transform society by increasing demand for Ageing Services.

What is An Aged Care Worker?

Supporting elderly or frail people to improve the quality of their life is the defining activity for an Aged Care Worker. Possessing an empathetic approach to giving care and an interest in working with the elder community are essential attributes for employment in the Aged Care Industry. Otherwise, the opportunities available encompass a wide range of expertise and provide excellent prospects for career development.

Expectations of the Aged Care Worker

Each resident has different needs and abilities that must be respected. With a goal to preserving independence for as long as possible, the Aged Care Worker provides physical, social and psychological support while helping the resident to maintain their dignity.
