Residential aged care - where are we now?

The aged care sector is evolving more rapidly than ever before, with an ageing population, new funding types, rising costs and a push towards a consumer centred model. Consolidations are also becoming more common, as large providers look to prosper in an increasingly competitive market.

Funding pressures

Aged care providers are facing increased financial pressure due to changes in funding models and a tightening in government subsidies. This has been coupled with increasing operating costs and declining viability for many residential aged care providers.

Ageing population

Australia’s population is ageing, and with it comes a significant increase in the number of older people accessing residential aged care. As a result, providers will need to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse population with contrasting complex care needs, preferences and individual circumstances.

Skills shortage

As the Australian population ages, the aged care workforce faces its own challenges. With a shortage of registered nurses and skilled care workers, many aged care providers will need to find new strategies to ensure that high quality care is delivered to all residents.

iCareHealth believes in utilising technology to enrich the experience of residential aged care for both providers and residents. Discover how our residential aged care solution is helping aged care providers.
