Welcome to Aged Care Blog, this is a website I’ve been wanting to make for a while. It’s a place for me to share the resources, opinions and thoughts about aged care that I’ve had while spending the last three years working in Diversional Therapy.
I have an interest in technology, and we will hopefully be looking at how we can use it to empower the lives of the elderly. Also of interest is dispelling some of the popular myths about working in aged care, and trying to increase awareness of what a career working with the elderly is actually like (it’s much more enjoyable than you’d think!).
When I’m not working at the nursing home I study psychology at the University of Sydney, and am hoping to apply what I’ve learned there to the field of aged care. If there’s anything you would like me to write about regarding anything to do with aging, psychology, dementia or technology please let me know.
