Secret life of aged care

In this episode we get an insider’s view on how life changes when you move into an aged care facility. Is the old-fashioned nursing home stereotype still the reality or have things changed? Joining Graham Mabury for this conversation are Baptistcare CEO, Russell Bricknell, Senior Occupational Therapist, Jodi Taylor and two residents from Baptistcare Yallambee Residential Care – Elaine Angell and Chris Rotherham.

Retirement – the dollars and the sense

Retirement is a life-stage that seems to evoke either great joy or great fear. Some of us can’t wait to down the tools and stop the daily commute while for others there is a sense of impending dread as retirement approaches. Join our host Graham Mabury as he sits down to discuss all things retirement with The West Australian ‘Your Money’ columnist and financial adviser Nick Bruining and Ivan Halbert who lives at Baptistcare Yallambee Village.

The importance of connection

As humans, we naturally crave connection with others and perhaps never more so than when we enter our latter years. While there’s no medical prescription to treat loneliness and social isolation, the gift of time from strangers is proving to be a powerful antidote for residents living in aged care facilities. Joining Graham Mabury to share their stories are aged care resident Alister Milne and his wife Jill Milne, and Ruth Bell, a retiree who is delivering joy and connection to aged care residents through volunteering.

Planning for the end of life

While every person on our planet is unique, we all share the human experience. We are born, and we eventually die. Yet while we freely celebrate and share stories and experiences of birth, the subject of death has never been treated in quite the same way. Join our host Graham Mabury as he sits down to discuss the practical, legal and spiritual aspects of our death with Lana Glogowski, Executive Officer at Palliative Care WA and Wade Sinclair head of Chaplaincy Services at Baptistcare.
