Focus on wellness and reablement in Home and Community Support and Residential Aged Care

Research priority: Optimising health and wellbeing
Researchers: Kath Paine, Janeen Cato, Claudia Meyer, Xanthe Golenko, Judy Lowthian
Study population: Home and Community Support, Retirement Living, Residential Aged Care, Bolton Clarke employees

A wellness and reablement approach to care is now mandated by the Federal Government for all home-based and residential aged care services. In line with this reform, services and the workforce need to re-focus the way they work with older people.

We are trialling implementation of a wellness and reablement approach, spanning our Home and Community Support and Residential Aged Care services. We are conducting formal evaluation of the feasibility and acceptability of this approach through a questionnaire and face-to-face interviews.
