Aged Care: Challenge to Find and Retain Staff

The acute shortage of health and aged care professionals continues to grow. By 2025 there will be a shortage of more than 100,000 direct-care workers, and the Department of Health and Ageing estimates that a 300% increase in the number of staff would be required just to keep up with existing demand alone.

According to “Job Access Data” on the Australian Government Department of Employment “Job Outlook”, there will be more than 50,000 new jobs over the five years up to November 2019, and the trend is expected to grow. There are currently 141,000 carers in the sector as of November 2014. Close to 50% have a Certificate III/IV in Aged Care, while the bulk are working on a flexible permanent casual basis earning between $25 – $55/hour.
