The Future of the Aged Care Industry

By on Thursday, February 24, 2011

The statistics regarding the future of aged care can be astounding. If dementia were a country, it would be the world’s 18th largest economy. If dementia was a company it would exceed American giant Wal-Mart’s profits by almost US$200 billion and Exxon Mobil’s profits by almost $US300 billion. The sheer cost and growth of dementia means that, according to Alzheimer’s Australia, Australia will face a shortage of 150,000 paid and unpaid carers by 2030.

Home Care can help elderly people by providing part-time services such as housework, meal preparation and health care. To determine to what extent of Home Care is needed, the individual needs to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) which in most cases will be free.

They will place the individual into one of four categories:

  • Level 1 - basic care needs
  • Level 2 - low level care needs
  • Level 3 - intermediate care needs
  • Level 4 - high level care needs
