We are committed to increasing access for older Western Australians to primary healthcare.
Psychological Therapy in Residential Aged Care Facilities Initiative: Low intensity, evidence-based psychological therapies and support services for people residing in aged care facilities with a diagnosed mental illness and those at risk of mental illness. Treatment is provided by registered and clinical psychologists onsite and was adapted during COVID-19 to support telehealth consultations.
Advance Project: A unique opportunity to work with general practice to build the capacity of everyone in the team to initiate informed discussions with patients about advance care planning and palliative care.
Great Southern Compassionate Communities Project: Increasing community awareness around end of life and empowering people to live and die well in their place of choice.
Lower Great Southern Age Friendly Charter: Serves to define the values and aspirations of older community members and how, together with service providers and government we can provide more opportunities for people to live long, healthy and happy lives.
