Further information

We’re working to improve the aged care system for older people in Australia and better support the dedicated workforce who cares for them.

The Aged Care Worker Survey 2024 is an important opportunity for aged care workers to tell us what’s working well and what we can do better to support them in delivering care to older people.

This survey seeks information to understand the skills aged care workers have and what training is needed, employment conditions, what is rewarding about the role and the challenges faced in delivering aged care.

This survey is open to all aged care workers who provide one-on-one care, including nurses, personal and home care workers and allied health professionals working in the following aged care programs:

  • Residential aged care
  • Home Care Packages Program
  • Commonwealth Home Support Program
  • Multi-purpose Service Program
  • National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flexible Aged Care Program

This survey is also open to independent contractors, agency and labour hire staff working in aged care.

The survey is open from 18 March to 30 April and should take 20 minutes to complete.

Data from this survey will be used to create new and evaluate current workforce policies.

Thank you in advance for completing the survey. All data supplied for the survey will remain confidential, will not be shared with your employer, and will not be used for compliance purposes.
