PPP059: Positive Conversations about Aged Care with Dr Julie Bajic Smith

PPP059: Positive Conversations about Aged Care with Dr Julie Bajic Smith

"Australian men over 85 have the highest rate of suicide in the country"

Wellbeing in older adults. It's a conversation we don't often have, but we need to. My guest today is Dr Julie Bajic-Smith, an aged care psychology consultant and mentor, and she is passionate about the need to shape a better future for everyone in aged care.

For five years Julie travelled to aged care homes and facilities to provide treatment and face-to-face intervention for the elderly. Her career took a turn when she kept hearing the same thing from her patients - I’m not getting the right emotional support from my caregivers. It's not that caregivers didn't care. They just didn't have the skills, knowledge and confidence to provide emotional as well as physical support and care to their clients.
