Disability Care- Getting Started
Disability care services are one of the biggest topics and concerns for the Australian population for a number of very important reasons.
Australia’s population is ageing and the evidence for this demographic change is undeniable. Past falls in fertility, increasing life expectancy and effect of the ‘baby boomer’ generation moving through older age groups, has contributed to an increase in the number and proportion of people aged over 65 years.
Fortunately any negative effect that our ageing population could represent for our economy and our way of life can be minimised if we have the correct methods of response in place for our ageing population and its potential carers.
Wether its residential disability care, disability care careers, retirement living, vacancies or any related service, each community or local government should have the knowledge and facilities in place to help or respond to the needs of the people we love the most.
