Aged care is a sector that demands precision, compassion, and efficiency. With the rising number of elderly people needing care, the challenge of managing resources and ensuring quality service becomes even more critical. This is where AI steps in, revolutionising aged care by optimising staff rosters and ensuring compliance, ultimately enhancing care for our elderly.

In this latest blog update from Daitum, we will explore how AI can transform your aged care organisation.


The Challenge of Staffing in Aged Care

Aged care facilities, like nursing homes and assisted living centres, require 24/7 staffing to provide consistent care and support. Managing these shifts is no easy task. Each roster must balance the needs of residents with the availability and qualifications of staff, all while minimising overtime and keeping labour costs in check. 

This is further complicated by compliance requirements and the necessity to prevent staff fatigue.

These solutions take into account the various skills and qualifications of staff, ensuring that the right person is always assigned to the right task. This not only improves the quality of care but also identifies opportunities for training and upskilling.
