DISENGAGEMENT, LONELINESS AND DEPRESSION
Older adults with declining health are at a high risk of disengagement, isolation and declining mental wellbeing. A common mistake in aged care settings is to assume mental health outcomes are the responsibility of experts. However, we believe there is a real opportunity for the wider workforce to also be involved. With the confidence and knowledge to recognise the warning signs of changes in mental health, significantly better outcomes for elders can be achieved.
HOW WE WORK
Our programs upskill workers so they can recognise deterioration and escalate concerns about client health. We also show how families can be involved in the process, as we truly believe that a holistic approach to mental health in late life significantly reduces the risk of depression rates.
WHAT WE DO
Through our targeted education and training for mental health, you and your team can make a difference. The skills and strategies taught can be embedded in day-to-day clinical and operational practice, improving outcomes for clients, families, workers and providers.
The mental wellbeing of the elders in your care affects all aspects of your business.
Through our programs and services, we’ll help you implement strategies that will significantly improve the engagement and wellbeing of your clients.
