According To Survey Australians Prefer Ageing Support at Home with Assistance
Australians want the Government and community to assist aged people to live well in their own homes for as long as possible
By: Guidestar Training & Professional Services
The Australian people is ageing about 14% of Australians are older than age 65. And that figure is going up. Increasing durability is boosting demand for aged care in a system that's yet now concerned.
Along with respondents 40-64 years old, the ratio somewhat: 66% wanted care at back home, and 34% would choose an aged care facility. For aged 65 or older, the distinction was even reduced: only 52% said they would choose care in their extended family, while 48% said they would choose inpatient care.
The survey didn't address why respondents chose the option they did. But we can speculate about why older Australians are more open to receiving care at medical facilities.
Increased Demand for Home Care
Google Trends gives a simple way to measure attention in a subject over time. The tool evaluates the popularity of online searches 0-100. A value of 100 symbolizes peak popularity for a term. By comparison, a value of 50 means the term is half as popular.
Since then, interest in home care has trended up while it has declined for nursing care. As of March 2021, home care has a score of 79 while nursing care has dropped to 33.

"Home care services can possibly provide a solution that fulfills customer first choice and relieves financial stresses. It typically costs a lot fewer to the customer to cover home care costs, assessed to residential care costs, and it amounts less to the taxpayer in Government subsidization,"
The data specifies that increased demand for Ageing care support in Australia will endure. With the population elderly and a large majority of Australians wishing to age in place, home care will be a critical service for the probable future.
