Health & Specialised care

  1. Dementia

    It may begin with forgetting where you left your car keys and can eventually lead to potentially dangerous situations such as forgetting to switch off the heater or kitchen stove.

  2. The link between dementia and depression

    After receiving a dementia diagnosis, there can be a lot of anxiety and stress around how the condition will develop and impact your life, what this means for your future, and what you need to consider next.

  3. Is respite care for me?

    Caring for a loved one is a valuable and rewarding job but also a tough one, and as a carer it’s easy to forget about your own well being. 

  4. What is palliative care for?

    There comes a time when a person living with a serious illness requires early intervention palliative care or is approaching the end of their life and may require additional support. This guide covers what you need to know about palliative care and how to get care.

  5. Managing Incontinence

    While incontinence is not commonly discussed, research shows it is a significant health issue.

  6. Do I need transition care?

    If you end up in hospital for a time due to a health problem and are soon to be released back to your home, you may want to engage the Transition Care Program which can assist you in transitioning back into everyday life.

  7. Counselling

    Placing a family member into care can be life changing. There are many factors, both physically and psychologically, that may arise which families sometimes find too difficult to cope with by themselves.

  8. Pet Therapy

    Pets not only offer companionship and unconditional love, in fact, emerging research suggests they may have the ability to boost health and general well-being, especially in the elderly.

  9. How can Veterans Care support me?

    If you are a veteran, war widow or war widower, there are a number of aged care services supported by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) that you may be able to access.

  10. The importance of elderly nutrition

    Food is such an important part of the human experience, but it can be harder to continue enjoying food when your body doesn’t process what you enjoy the same way it did when you were younger.

  11. Keep mobile and stay independent

    The changes that occur with ageing can lead to problems with mobility such as unsteadiness while walking, difficulty getting in and out of a chair, or increased risk of falls. These are reportedly the top mobility problems experienced by older people and a major cause of injury and death. 

  12. Staying safe during long heatwaves

    Australian summers are getting hotter and over the last few years there has been an increase in record hot days. Heatwaves can be a difficult time for older people. Especially when the heat never seems to end.
