Being Curious is a series of presentations from local & national initiatives who are demonstrating active ways of enhancing the lives of diverse populations in the community. This series will engage the listener with projects that will encourage them to get more curious about grass roots ideas which aim to impact the lives of marginalised or vulnerable people by strengthening their capacities physically, emotionally, mentally & spiritually.

The aim of the Webinar series is to share information about a range of topics and projects to spark curiosity to positively impact upon the lives of older people.  Our hope is these sessions will kindle deeper understanding and further engagement with these projects, connecting older people to empowering practices or even ignite new ventures and relationships. Join in to listen to one session or many.

 

Thursday 11th March 2021 : Wellbeing in Ageing – Refining the Blend; Global Centre for Modern Ageing

 

The Global Centre for Modern Ageing (GCMA) undertook an expansive study on older Australians’ wellbeing and response to COVID-19 restrictions, spanning March to July 2020.

The research revealed the following:

  • The resilience of older Australians and their preparedness to adopt new technologies to maintain social connection, and minimise the risk of virus exposure.
  • Particularly, the use of telehealth services to access primary healthcare and manage risk.

Julianne Parkinson, GCMA’s C.E.O., will present research findings, with a focus on telehealth, and discuss the opportunities for aged care providers, and the potential of telehealth to improve wellbeing of aged care service users, including residents, families, staff, and clinicians.
