Free workshop for age carers
A free workshop for relatives and friends of people in aged care homes, and for staff working in aged care, will be held at St Carthages Community Care next week on Friday, March 16, from 12 noon until 4.30pm.
The workshop covers issues like helping people accept the need to go into a nursing home, how relatives and staff can work together to give the best quality care, and how relatives can help loved ones feel at home in their new surroundings.
Workshop organiser, Luciana Trojer, said one of the issues in aged care is communicating with people from a non-English speaking background.
