Aged Care in Western Australia
The services provided for older Australians fall under two broad categories - community care and residential aged care. Currently less than 10 per cent of over-65s live in an aged care or residential facility, but that figure can be expected to rise as the population ages over the next 40 years.
It’s a huge industry and it is expanding rapidly. Australia’s community care workforce is expected to grow to over 800,000 by 2050, which means there are many, many opportunities for people to become involved. There is also a range of aged care qualifications, career development opportunities and skills training available.
