Knowing how to support older people as they transition into aged care, respect individual spiritual beliefs and engage in ‘end of life’ conversations, is the focus of Meaning Ageing Australia’s regional professional development workshops.
Corporate First Aid Australia’s key aged care trainers and management team, are looking forward to attending a workshop in Busselton on 1 March to hear from facilitator Mr. Kim Thoday.
Mr. Thoday has found himself in the company of older people throughout his life. He has worked for Eldercare (South Australia) since 2010 as a residential care chaplain and more recently as both a chaplain and a project manager. He is also a serving chaplain with the RAAF and was a police chaplain for over 10 years.
Mr. Thoday has wide-ranging experience as a spiritual care supervisor, key-note speaker and conference presenter. His subject matter has ranged from peace activism, spiritual care of people living with dementia, spirituality and postmodernity and the intersection of faith and politics in Australian history.
Due to the majority of the CFAA Team being out of the office, the CFAA office is closed on Thursday 1, March 2018. No doubt we will have lots to share with our current CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support students on our return.
