Opening the Doors: Addressing the Barriers between Residential Care and the Community
Intergenerational projects actively seek to create programs and spaces for people of all ages and abilities to learn, collaborate or just be together. This interactive workshop is designed for people who have a professional responsibility and interest in enhancing experiences in aged care.
Colin McDonnell will share inspirational stories and explore solutions for tackling some of the actual or perceived barriers between residential care and community. Lyndell Cohen will present a case study on KIM (Keep IT Moving), an active
