Rethinking Aged Care
Self Directed Support is an approach for all people including older people. Kate will be sharing her learning at the Better Practice Conference led by the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency (AACQA). The conference will be held in 6 locations across Australia beginning in Darwin in May 17.
Kate will demonstrate how supporting people to explore their own solutions is critical to the success of Consumer Directed Care and how Support Providers need to think differently about what they offer.
Kate will share her top 5 lessons from international practice including:
1.Individually designed solutions – no one offer fits all
2.Creativity not mechanism – focus on creativity not pushing people through a process
3.Principles that drive practice – people are the experts in their own lives
4.Keep it simple – knowledge is power
5.Partners not suppliers – trusting relationships are at the heart of Self Directed Approaches
