A solution to support you, your loved ones, and the aged care industry

With a rapidly ageing population and a caregiver crisis, HomeGuardian identified an opportunity to improve the livelihood of the ageing population and to support the aged care industry into the future.

In the next 30 years Australia will have over 1.4 million more people aged 85+

By 2047, there will be a 100% increase in the number of people receiving care

350,000 workers are currently in the aged care sector

Half of which will be retired in the next 15 years

There is a caregiver crisis, where the demand for carers is increasingly outweighing the supply.

Australia’s rapidly ageing population are wanting to live independently longer but concerns around safety and wellbeing mean this isn’t always possible.
80% of older people would prefer to age in their own homes, yet only 20% do
Family caregiving can place a strain on relationships, and can have physical, emotional, and financial consequences.
Australians want ‘active ageing’ with an emphasis on improving the quality of life as we age

The fall statistics globally indicate that more people die annually from a fall than drug use. Of those who fall, over 60% cannot get up by themselves and over 30% are left lying on the floor for over an hour injured, crying, bleeding on dying.

30% of adults over 65 experience at least one fall per year

Falls account for 40% of injury-related deaths

48% of older people fear they will fall again after an incident

The major reason for admission into Aged Care is as a result of a traumatic incident, such as a fall

When an older person falls, their hospital stay is almost twice that of older patients who are admitted for any other reason

Falls are the leading cause of hospital admissions over 65+
