COVID-19 Resilient Environments and Meaningful Engagement using indoor spaces

Type: Video 43mins
Supporting Aged Care Quality Standard: 5

Webinar – Wednesday 25 Nov 2020

During COVID-19 many residents have had little contact with friends and family and have spent a lot of time within their residential aged care facility.

It has become even more important to find ways to use the environment to enable and encourage residents to do things that are meaningful to them. This webinar looked at how we can use what we have to create opportunities for interaction and enjoyment.
