Being Curious is a series of presentations from local SA 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.


Future presentations in the 2020 series include:

• Wednesday 29th July: Physical Activity: Foundation to active ageing; Active Ageing Australia
• Thursday 6th August: Insights into Better Consumer Engagement; The Plug=in (COTA SA)

Better Practice Project’s 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.

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

Registered participants will receive the Zoom link prior to the event.

** Note:  That this session commences at 10.00 am Adelaide time
