With an ageing population, the demand for residential care beds is expected to rise sharply in New Zealand. The Demand Planner provides information about demographic trends and how many ARC beds are being used in each territorial local authority. This helps Te Whatu Ora, ARC providers, and others in the health sector to understand the capacity, mix and location of beds that will be needed. Updates to the Demand Planner are released annually.
