Caring for an aging population

The care sector is set to expand significantly over the next decade to meet the needs of an aging population. By 2030, Skills for Care predicts the sector will create an additional 350,000 – 700,000 jobs to meet this demand, an increase of 21 – 44 per cent.

The number of care providers has increased by 43 per cent over the last eight years. During this period we have seen the number of care homes decrease by 11 per cent. This reflects Government policy to promote independence for people with care and support needs.

Because the Good Oaks’ model is based around supporting those paying privately for home care, we are at the heart of the growing care at home market.
