As a result of the ageing population, the aged care sector is growing at a rapid rate. This has led to an increasingly diverse range of occupational opportunities in the provision of home, community and residential services.
This interview led program explores the aged care sector, high and low levels of care, changes associated with ageing, positive ageing, and the rights and interests of old people.
We talk with residential managers, team leaders and lifestyle co-ordinators as well as researchers experienced in the industry.
Ideal for community services related studies at the TAFE level, this program covers the essential elements of the ISC Community services unit of competency, 'Work Effectively with Older People'.
