Welcome to Wise Care

Where we empower people to transform the aged care experience for the elderly

My name is Dr Julie Bajic Smith and I’m here to confront the elephant in the room

Over half the people in residential aged care in Australia suffer from depression.

To put things into perspective, there were more than 271,000  older adults in residential aged care in 2017*.

Wise Care is a one-of-a-kind community for allied health professionals, aged care providers, and families.

It is where I share real experiences, clinical knowledge and award-winning strategies so that you can meet the emotional needs of the elderly in aged care.

My mission is to halve the depression rate in Australian residential homes and facilities by 2022 and I hope you can join me.

I am your aged care psychology consultant

I have dedicated my life to aged care psychology for over a decade.

I began as a practising psychologist helping hundreds of older adults transition smoothly into aged care. It was during this time that my clients kept telling me how much they felt their caregivers lacked the understanding needed to support them emotionally.

And so began my crusade as an aged care psychology consultant and mentor.

Statistic

In 2018, depression was the most commonly diagnosed mental health condition among people in permanent residential aged care. 

 

Every person in aged care deserves to be heard, understood and loved.
