Get current evidence in restorative care, reablement and wellness at the Active Ageing Conference. This one day conference brings together leading providers, allied health professionals and experts in the field to hear the latest in research and practice on these topics in addition to new research on falls prevention and innovative case studies in exercise and outdoor education programs. There will also be training opportunities with a series of workshops.

Interactive sessions will cover issues such as:

  • How Montessori is being used with older people and those with dementia
  • Addressing social isolation
  • Restorative approaches for people with dementia
  • Technology-enabled programs

The focus of the conference is enabling older people to improve their functional independence, social participating and quality of life.

Among the speakers is Ricki Smith, CEO of Access Care Network Australia, who will present findings from her recent study tour of reablement models in New Zealand, England, Wales and Denmark. Three providers, Uniting AgeWell, Feros Care and HammondCare will share their experiences of working with clients to reverse or slow down functional decline.

The conference is hosted by Australian Ageing Agenda and Community Care Review. It will be held in Melbourne on August 30, 2017.
