This month the first of three features on Ananda Aged Care was published in the Australian Journal of Dementia Care – Australia’s leading professional journal for dementia best practice.
Written by Michael Page (Resident Focused Care Advocate), Karen Daniels (Director of Nursing) and Dr Pooja Newman (Clinical Director) the four page article describes how Ananda has partnered with Dementia Training Australia to provide best practice dementia training for all its staff.
In the next edition of the AJDC Ananda will again be featured with an article describing how we have provided freedom of movement inside and out for all residents, in line with best practice and the new Aged Care Standards.
A third article will also appear written by Dr Andrew Stafford, Director of DTA in Western Australia and Michael Page, and describing a new Virtual Reality workshop developed by DTA. In June 25 Ananda staff became the first in the country to access this innovative education where staff can ‘walk in the brain’ of a simulated resident with dementia.
From March 2019 to March 2020 Ananda is providing a significant investment in best practice dementia training which is driving numerous continuous improvement initiatives at Ananda, to make it a dementia friendly community and benefiting residents with and without dementia and their families.
