Episode 29 Prof Joe brings three guests, Marie Crossland, Lisa Clinnick and Gabriel Villaflor. Together we examine the challenges of maintaining usual operations in an aged care home during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Aged care homes do not simply stop operating or caring for residents because of the pandemic. Aged care is an essential service.
Marie, Lisa and Gabriel, provide their insights into the day-to-day operations, adjusting existing models of care around to maintain lifestyle and managing dying. The three bring a wealth of lived experiences of managing and delivering aged care services. The podcast concludes with their top three issues to address for the future.
