As the population of developed countries continues to age, understanding the impact of this demographic shift is becoming increasingly important.

This increase has put strain on the already stretched resources of the service, leading to longer wait times for clients.

Townsville hand therapy and Selectability NDIS Mackay are just two examples of how this aging population is impacting the delivery of services.
