Respite surges 10%, ADS climbs $1.17 and care minutes are also up

Increases in ADS, occupancy and RN minutes

Rob Covino presents Mirus Industry Analysis (MIA), a series of monthly insights into the key performance indicators and cumulative industry trends from the 90,000+ beds we monitor for financial sustainability. 

Welcome to the May 2023 edition of Mirus Industry Analysis (MIA). 

Revenue management

In April, the industry experienced further gains in ADS across all facility types with the average jumping up $1.17 from the previous month. We can expect further growth from the 1st of July with the announcement from DoHAC committing to funding higher wages in residential aged care across the country. 


Occupancy rates saw a surge due to new respite admissions, which went up by 10% over the course of April. Permanent admissions performance in April was not as impressive as it was in March, achieving only two-thirds of the permanent admissions. 

Workforce management

Total direct care minutes per resident per day increased by 1.24% from March to April, reaching 171.36 minutes. The RN minutes also continued their upward trend, with an average of 21.79 minutes worked per resident per day.
