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.
- 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.
