Maintaining positive psychological and emotional well-being throughout our lifespan is a challenge for all of us. Surprisingly, the highest rate of suicide in Australia is for men over 85 years of age. In recognition of the increased need for mental health services for the aged, Australian Government Minister for Health, the Hon. Greg Hunt has committed a further five million dollars for seven research projects. These projects are focused on practical approaches to suicide prevention among older Australians.
Building agility into house design which supports all stages of a family life has become essential, as families look for ways to retain investment in larger parental homes and seniors look for alternatives to remain living independently. Design considerations that promote fiscal maximisation, support people as they transition from empty-nesters to retirees, make downsizing more attractive and affordable to an increasingly connected and environmentally aware ageing population.
The team at Corporate First Aid Australia are well skilled at dealing with change. Today we welcome, Business Development and Training Officer, Tracie Yardley from Work Smart into the shared space that we occupy with private RTO, Combined Team Services at 6 Victoria Street Bunbury.
Working smart, doesn’t mean that you work extra hard. It is about working collaboratively as demonstrated by the team at CFAA and Work Smart.
Recently Tracie Yardley, Business Development and Training Officer for Work Smart in Bunbury and Di Needham, Training Manager at RTO Corporate First Aid Australia, teamed up to create training and employment opportunities in the South West.
To our all our valued supporters of Corporate First Aid Australia, we announce a positive new direction for 2018.

From 1 February 2018, Corporate First Aid Australia will be managed under the parent company of the community based not-for-profit organisation ATC Work Smart whose head office is located in Albany, West Australia.
We all know that trends come and go, and some return up-styled for a new modern context. Take the poncho and the Senior First Aid Certificate. At CFAA, we deliver our first aid training in a single day at a convenient central Bunbury location or if you gather six of your work colleagues we’ll come to you. Just ring us on 1300 177 337. We will also provide you with a convenient card to pop into your wallet to remind you when your first aid refresher is due.
The CFAA team need no excuse to don the party frocks and we were ecstatic to glam up again, for the West Australian Regional Achievement and Community Awards, held at Perth Hyatt Regency on Saturday night. A select group of finalists was selected from 350 entries.
At CFAA our team is always on the go delivering high-quality training to a wide range of clients at our location or at the worksite. Our nurses know just how important foot health is. CFAA’s Training Manager Dianne Needham recently delivered First Aid training to the friendly administrative team at South West Foot and Ankle Centre.
It is often said that change is a matter of certainty.
