With the rollout of Consumer Directed Care in 2015, the Australian Aged Care marketplace has materially shifted to incorporate; customised resident experiences, greater community consultation, new pricing models and the elevation of workforce capability.
As organisations attempt to integrate innovative models of care, the organic growth of the Australian Aged Care Industry is expanding. Attributed to Australia’s ageing population and an increase in life expectancy outcomes, the current $35 Billion Aged Care economy of this nation will experience 50% growth over the next 10 years and employ over 500,000 Australians.
As marketplace complexity, scale and accountability continues to increase, organisations of the future will be underpinned by robust clinical frameworks, innovation across care planning, elevated staff engagement strategies and the integration of technology for enhancing consumer and workforce optionality.
