Risks: Aged & Community Care Sector, Adelaide

Every Adelaide aged care service provider is unique, and therefore will have its own set of risks. Some risks could include:

Public Liability is always a key risk for this industry sector. The majority of claims may relate to slips and falls; however, the frailty of many of the residents and visitors can lead to significant personal injuries. This risk may then increase if your facility has swimming, gymnasium and other associated activities. The major risk faced by this sector is large scale loss of life due to fire therefore this exposure must be managed accordingly.

Fire and other perils such as flood and theft can vary depending on the extent of residential services offered. Product Liability is an exposure where food service is provided or medical supplies such as prescription drugs.

The Business Interruption risk for this sector is quite high and appropriate indemnity periods need to be properly assessed. A large-scale residential home will take some time to find alternative premises and receive the appropriate permits to rebuild. This can lead to a blow out in expenses related to temporary relocation of residents or permanent loss of revenue or bonds.

Professional Liability risk is considered to be high due to various services provided including medication management and patient care.

Cyber Risk is now an ever present risk of all industry sectors. Due to the sensitive nature of personal health information that may be stored, this area of risk needs to be managed very carefully.

The Adelaide aged care sector

According to the Royal Commission into Aged Care, it is projected that the number of Australians aged 85 years and over will increase from 515,700 in 2018–19 (2.0% of the Australian population) to more than 1.5 million by 2058 (3.7% of the population).

Data from the Department of Health (2020) shows that during 2019-2020, over one million people received support from aged care services in Australia.

According to a report by the University of Adelaide:

  • South Australia’s population is urban-centric, and this means older people in rural and remote areas have fewer aged care options available
  • People 80 years and over are more likely to require aged care services and of these, there are greater numbers of women than men accessing services

The report also states that in 2016-17 in South Australia, the number of aged care clients across each program was:

  • - 82,776 Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) clients
  • - 8,052 Home Care clients
  • - 21,153 Permanent Residential Care clients and 6,760 Respite Residential Care clients
  • - 2,368 Transition Care clients

Adelaide continues to show strong growth despite the challenges. As the major economic capital of South Australia, Adelaide also offers the famous The Adelaide Park Lands and City Layout, which was inducted into the National Heritage List in 2008, the nation’s highest heritage honour. Adelaide is also the first, and only, designated UNESCO City of Music in Australia.
