Event description

Description

The South Australian Collaborative Projects with Better Practice Project are committed to offering learning opportunities which enable us to gain a deeper understanding of the loneliness of older people in the community. Concepts & issues of loneliness, community belonging & building capacity will be investigated in this interactive space to provide opportunities for you to explore how you can work with people experiencing loneliness.

On completion of this workshop learners will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of natural relationships and community connections
  • Describe barriers to participation
  • Apply knowledge about addressing loneliness in older people
  • Describe the benefits of community participation to prevent loneliness for older people
  • Strengthen Reablement strategies in working with older people to facilitate community connections

This workshop for service providers was developed around the findings from ‘Alone in a Crowd’ research by South Australian Mandy Stanley. The research challenges stereotypical concepts associated with old age and points to the significant health risks facing older people who live with loneliness in old age.
