Dana Lavenant is a qualified trainer who currently works with Sector Support & Development within Aged and Community Services Australia (ACSA) for the Workforce and Industry Development team.

The aim of the work undertaken by Dana is to support and offer development opportunities to the aged services sector located in South Australia. Her passion is in developing learning opportunities and facilitating conversations focused on values-based principles, which are individualised and challenge traditional thinking. The key goal of SSD work is to facilitate strength-based approaches to inspire better practices regarding quality issues with the workforce, while keeping the older person’s desire for living their best life and recovering from adversity at the forefront of the work.

Dana has experience in customer service management and the development and provision of community-based services for older people, people living with dementia and mental health issues and the natural relationships who care for them.

A lifelong learner Dana has filled a number of roles as a social scientist, health counsellor, student, mother, artist and adventurer.

For many of us our place of work is someone’s home. Consequently relationships develop in various forms and challenges emerge. This workshop will explore the concept of “Right Relationship”, as defined by Michael Kendrick.

Natural supports and formal supports can be beneficially used at the same time and in conjunction with each other, though often for quite different purposes. To understand the role of relationships which enhance the lives of older people we need to be clear about our formal role from a service. This session engages the participant in conversations about what relationship means to the worker, the service, family relationships of the older person and the older person themselves.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of “right relationship”
  • Identify the impact of the home as the workplace
  • Understand what constitutes professional behaviour and a formal relationship
  • Clarify the difference between “friend” and “friendly”

Target Audience:  CHSP support workers, volunteers, other aged care workers – highly beneficial for frontline workers and volunteers. For best results team leaders and manager should have undertaken the session to enhance team practices and strengthen cultural changes.
