Historically aged care has predominately been delivered via clinical and hospital style models. These generally focus on a person’s illness or dysfunction, and are not conductive towards independence.
In response to this wellness and reablement models of care are becoming more recognised. Supported by an emerging body of evidence, this approach has been shown to improve function, cognition, independence and quality of life for older people.
In this webinar Lidia Conti from AvantiCare will demonstrate how you can implement wellness and reablement into your aged care home. She’ll draw on the latest progressive approaches, as well as AdvantiCare’s own holistic wellbeing model.
