The Voice of Aged Care will offer you tips and tricks on improving service delivery without complexity and overwhelm. Each episode will include information that is inspirational, provides you with insider knowledge and real experiences and most importantly, it will be described in easy to understand ways so that it’s not overwhelming or confusing.
There is so much information out there about aged care. A lot of that information is not necessarily a true representation of what goes on in aged care. It’s when we hear the real unedited stories and experiences that we really connect with others.
“In this podcast I wanted to share with you some inspirational stories which I myself have encountered a number of times in aged care. You see, not everything’s negative or dark: there are people out there who are excited to be able to work with this population, and equally there are people who live in aged care homes who are happy with the environment and who are in fact thriving.” ~ Dr. Julie Bajic Smith
