Improving aged care environments

Our next edition of Australian Ageing Agenda magazine is looking at trends in aged care refurbishments as well as workforce recruitment and retention strategies and medication management.

In the March-April edition of Australian Ageing Agenda magazine we are examining new trends in residential aged care refurbishments.

Many in the sector are continuing to upgrade older residential homes to improve the quality of life of residents, boost staff ability to deliver services and meet the new quality standards.

We will talk to architects, interior designers and residential aged care providers active in this space about:

  • new trends in design
  • the latest in interiors and materials
  • designing for staff efficiency
  • meeting the new standards.

Recruitment and retention

As seen recently at the royal commission, attracting and retaining aged care staff remains a challenge for the sector.

A challenge that potentially affects a facility’s bottom line and its quality of services.

Next issue, we look at recruitment, retention and hiring trends and measures providers are taking to engage current and future employees, such as professional development and wellbeing programs.

Medication management

With issues related to medication among the most reported and complained about in aged care, the quality use of medicines remains under the spotlight.

We will speak with experts to find out about the latest evidence-based quality measures the sector can take to improve medication management for residents.
