5 - An Economic Analysis of the Migrant Workforce in the Elderly Care Sector in New Zealand: Focus on Asian Caregivers

Friday, July 6
2:40 PM - 4:10 PM
Location: Maple, Lower Ground Floor

In New Zealand, the population over the age of 65 makes up approximately 14.3% of the population, and this is estimated to increase between 21 and 24% by 2036. This highlights the need for more elderly care workers to complement its increasing aging populations. NZ has grown increasingly reliant on overseas-born caregivers, particularly from Asian countries, despite its labor market remaining formally closed to this demographic. This research examines the employment characteristics and retention mechanisms of caregivers in the elderly care sector in NZ, and also aims to assess the likely impact of two new government policies in the healthcare sector and migration.
