New requirements for our future aged care workforce

Australia’s aged care workforce needs to be renewed if it is to meet the challenges of increased demand, consumer choice, a rapidly changing marketplace and the integration of new technologies, Leading Age Services Australia (LASA) told the Future Aged Care Workforce Senate Inquiry in Canberra today.
LASA CEO Sean Rooney told the Senate Inquiry that the current aged care workforce was ageing and it needed to expand and change composition rapidly to meet the growth in demand for services.
