As the aged care sector strives to meet its new requirements in wellness and reablement, leading providers, allied health professionals and experts in the field will come together at the Active Ageing Conference 2016 to hear the latest evidence and practice.
The conference comes as the Federal Government’s first restorative care packages come online from mid-year, while community care providers are coming to terms with their new requirements to adopt a wellness approach in service delivery across both home support and home care.
Three leading aged care providers – Catholic Community Services, Alzheimer’s Queensland and Southern Cross Care – will outline how they embedded wellness and reablement approaches across their organisations during a panel session at the conference, which is hosted by Australian Ageing Agenda and Community Care Review.
Elsewhere, Kelly Gray, lead consultant of the Step Forward Together Project at Community West will share how aged care providers can use co-production to develop and implement wellness and reablement programs with their clients.
Other breakout sessions on the day include:
- Using coaching in a restorative care model
- Risk management in reablement programs
- Reablement-based ‘show me’ assessment
- Falls prevention in community care
- Using apps and smart devices for wellness and reablement
The Active Ageing Conference 2016 takes place on 4 August at the Swissotel Sydney. Visit the conference website to register
