Being Curious is a series of presentations from local and national initiatives who are curious about enhancing the lives of diverse populations in the community. This series will engage the listener with projects that will encourage you to get more curious. Once your curiosity is sparked, it will kindle further action to engage with these projects, connect older people from your service to them or even ignite your own ventures.

This is an opportunity to find out more about grass roots ideas which aim to impact the lives of marginalised or vulnerable people by strengthening their capacities physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.


Thursday 23 July: Engaging the workforce in integrated spiritual care; Meaningful Ageing Australia

Integrated contemporary spiritual care remains elusive for many organisations.  Drawing on the work of Meaningful Ageing Australia and his experience working for a service provider, Kim will showcase some of the most effective ways to bring down barriers and engage teams in this vital component of holistic care.  The presentation is interactive and includes seeing some of our most loved videos.


Presentations in the 2020 series include:

  • Tuesday 25 February:  Physical Activity: Foundation to active ageing; Active Ageing Australia
  • Friday 20 March: Insights into Better Consumer Engagement; The Plug=in (COTA SA)
  • Wednesday 29 April: Moving Towards Wellness through Self-Management; LEAP SA
  • Tuesday 26 May:  Reframing Retirement; Mindset for Life
  • Tuesday 11 June: Opening Doors; Ageing 2.0 Adelaide
  • Tuesday 23 June: The Forgotten Australians Aged Care Project; RASA & Helping Hand


Our role is to support the Aged Services sector in developing the capacity of older people and the workforce which assists them to access their best lives. Our aim is to share information about these organisations and projects because they are striving to enhance the experiences of older people in the community.

It is essential to book in as space will be limited for the Mile End venue. We hope you will be able to log in to view these presentations live or listen later at your convenience.

These sessions will begin at 10am. Grab a coffee and join us in Being Curious!
