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.
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+
HomeGuardian was designed in conjunction with the Aged Care Industry, Elderly Technology Acceptance Specialists and the Elderly themselves to offer a sophisticated but simple and easy to use solution that provides better than humanly possible care.
