Ideagen Aged Care Workforce Report 2023
Australia’s ambitious aged care reform agenda is facing a harsh reality check.
In the wake of the Royal Commission, the Australian Government put aged care reform at the top of its agenda. The last few years have seen a flurry of planning, budgeting and legislating.
Aged care workers are the frontline witnesses to the reality of how such reforms, so laudable on paper, are faring in practice. This Reality Check: Workers’ Views on the Impossibilities of Aged Care report reveals a stark gap between the well-intentioned ideals of our aged care reform agenda, and the alarming reality.
What's in the Report?
We surveyed more than 700 aged care workers across Australia to get a snapshot of the state of the sector in 2023 and beyond.
The report betters our understanding of industry challenges and sparks discussions on how we can enhance and maintain aged care, nationwide.
