Working in Aged Care can be fulfilling and rewarding
The Australian Government pays for the bulk of aged care services; residents and families pay the gap. The contribution that residents and families are required to pay is capped by the Government.
Costs will differ depending on your personal circumstances, the facility and the type of care required. The Australian Government explains the different types of costs and provides a Fee Estimator to calculate the costs of residential aged care. Click here to access the Fee Estimator.

Australia’s ageing population means the demand for aged care works will increase in coming years, According to the “2015 Intergenerational Report” (March 2015), Australian Government expenditure on aged care has nearly quadrupled since 1975, while the number of people aged 70 years and over is expected to triple in the next 40 years, reaching 7 million people by 2055. The "Living Longer, Living Better" report (April 2012) found that by 2050 around 3.5 million Australians will access aged care services each year. This means that the aged care industry is growing and jobs will continue to be in demand.
