There’s no doubt that aged care workers are major contributors to the welfare of older Australians and their families. With over one million older Aussies receiving aged care or related services, the industry is huge and growing.

There are currently over 350,000 aged care workers employed in a variety of roles, from nursing to community care, personal care and allied health services; however, the industry is already strained and this huge demand is set to increase in the near future. By the year 2050, the population of Australian’s aged above 65 years to 84 years will double, while those aged over 84 years will quadruple – the majority of these will rely on aged care services for their everyday needs, so there’s certainly guaranteed employment for those pursuing an aged care role.

Regardless though, it is extremely important that the quality of aged care workers continues to grow along with the demand for them. Not only do quality staff have a higher retention rate, but they are also able to take on more patients per head (due to their ability to cope more efficiently), meaning the overall pressure on the industry is eased.

The primary mechanism for improving the quality of staff within the field is to develop a commitment to staff training and ongoing development beyond the mandatory industry standards. By doing this, staff improve their overall knowledge, role-specific skills, productivity and ongoing loyalty to their roles. As the ageing population increases, so too will the number of complex care requirements for people living with complex conditions. Because of this, it makes much more sense to upskill already capable staff with knowledge of these conditions, rather than just throw a larger number of underqualified staff at the issue. As previously mentioned, the greater the skills of each staff member, the higher the overall productivity, efficiency and output of the entire workforce will be.
