Empowering the aged care workforce to transform the experience for the elderly
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*. Therefore, there are far too many elderly in aged care facilities who are emotionally not well.
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 by 2022 and I hope you can join me.
Be the reason why an older person feels welcome, seen, heard, valued, loved and supported.
Grief is a normal part of life. However, in late life, it is often experienced more frequently. This introductory course (2 hours) offers key terminology and concepts around grief in late life including the difference between grief and depression and strategies to overcome grief.
Learn practical strategies to better understand and emotionally support clients, improve engagement and resilience to overcome social isolation. The Enhanced Wellbeing in Late Life course has been endorsed by ACWA and will transform the delivery of emotional care.
