Age care – A lucrative career option

The age care workers are considered as the backbone of the Australian health sector. They make an invaluable contribution to the daily lives of several elderly residents living in residential age care facilities. There are several benefits associated with studying qualifications like Certificate III in Individual support.

Age care workers are in high demand because of the average age increase which requires a greater focus on the complexities in the healthcare sector. There is a shortage of aged care workers even though the age care sector is the largest and fastest growing industry.

The personal satisfaction in making a difference to someone’s life is a truly rewarding experience.
An age care worker is not only a friend to the elderly resident but also offers assistance in daily activities like showering, dressing, eating, walking etc. By working in a tight knit team, every age care worker share the same goal and dedicated to understand the elderly individual’s physical, emotional and personal needs.
