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*.

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