Strategies for tackling loneliness in Aged Care (Via Zoom)

Due to popular demand, NARI will be re-running this workshop!

Half-Day workshop
Tuesday 26 July 2022, 9:30am-12:00pm AEST

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
This workshop will address the following Aged Care standards
  • Aged Care Standard 1 - Consumer dignity and choice
  • Aged Care Standard 4 - Services and supports for daily living
