S2:E2 Working in aged care – what’s it really like?

While many of us associate aged care with nurses, they only make up around 20% of employees. This dynamic workforce is comprised of other roles such as personal care assistants, support workers, lifestyle coordinators, allied health professionals, cleaning, laundry, catering and administration. Graham Mabury sits down for a chat with two of them, Baptistcare Lifestyle Coordinator Kim Jordan, and Care Partner Ron Manuel.

Demystifying Aged Care Podcast - S2:E1

S2:E1 Diversity within diversity – multicultural ageing

Accessing the information needed to make important decisions about aged care can be overwhelming for anyone. But it is especially difficult if you’re from a culturally and linguistically diverse background (CALD). In this episode Host Graham Mabury chats with lifelong friend and President of the Ethnic Communities Council of Western Australia, Suresh Rajan, about some of the unique challenges facing older Australians from CALD backgrounds.

Catch-up with Season 1

S1:E4 Living with dementia

The prevalence of dementia poses a number of challenges for the aged care sector as well as families caring for a loved one impacted by the condition.

S1:E5 The importance of connection

We naturally crave connection with others, a powerful antidote to treat loneliness and social isolation for residents living in aged care facilities.

S1:E6 Planning for the end of life

While we freely celebrate and share stories and experiences of birth, planning for the end of life has never been treated in quite the same way.
