The report examines the attitudes, expectations and strategies of agencies working in aged care in South Australia in 2016. It sets out to document the business conditions and perceived opportunities affecting the sector at a time of considerable transition, with a view to establishing a baseline of information that permits the monitoring of change over time, and helps inform both business growth and the formation of government policy.
The data presented in this report represents a unique set of insights into South Australia’s aged care sector at a time when it prepares for, and experiences, change. The data presented here was collected from February to May 2016 via an on-line survey sent to the CEOs of identifiable providers of aged care services in the state.
This data collection will be repeated over the coming years to provide a snapshot of both change and emerging issues and accompanies research into the perspectives of aged care consumers in South Australia in 2016.
