Career in Home Care
The home care industry is in a rapid phase of growth as Australia currently has an ageing population with roughly 16% of Australians aged 65 and over. As a result of their advanced age and declining health, many of these older adults will have increased difficulty staying in their homes without support. This creates an increased number of opportunities for individuals wanting to find work in the home care industry. The industry can offer employment for a wide variety of positions including personal care workers, nurses, and allied health services including physiotherapy and occupational therapy.
Some of the other potential benefits of a career in home care include:
- Hands-on employment for nursing and allied health students
- Ability to have a flexible schedule
- Meaningful career that makes a difference to the lives of your clients
