Strategies for tackling loneliness in Aged Care (Via Zoom)

Half-Day workshop
Wednesday 20th October 2021, 9:30am-12:00pm AEDT

Loneliness and social isolation can be harmful to both your physical and mental health. According to the Australian Psychology Society, 1 in 4 people experienced an episode of loneliness, and 1 in 2 reported feeling lonely at least once a week. What strategies can we as health practitioners put into place to prevent older people feeling lonely?

This evidence-based highly interactive workshop will draw on the experience of participants and also focus on:

  • The psychology behind loneliness, what it is related to, how common it is, what causes it
  • Strategies to prevent loneliness and social isolation in people living in residential aged care and those receiving home care
  • Befriending, volunteers and other ways to expand social networks
