Aged and Community Services Australia (ACSA) in partnership with Mental Health & Well-being Training Solutions has developed a series of 1 and/or 1.5 hour non-clinical webinars specifically relating to Mental Health of the older people receiving Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) services in their home. The webinars will focus on raising awareness and providing education ad training in understanding a variety of Mental Health conditions being experienced by older people and the impact these conditions may have on care and service delivery in the older person’s home.
Participants will be informed about how to support, respond and communicate with clients in distress. There will be opportunity for participants to ask questions and discuss experiences through the Zoom ‘chat’ function.
The Older Person & Grief, Loss, Fear, & Social Isolation – The impact on Service Delivery
In this session we will be looking at how grief, loss and fear can impact on aged care service delivery, and what aged care workers and volunteers can do to support an older person experiencing these emotions. It is important for older people to know that service delivery is safe, and that workers are skilled and well trained.
Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) team leaders/ supervisors/ coordinators, aged care workers and volunteers are encouraged to register
Registered participants will receive the Zoom link 1-2 days prior to the event.
