About Us

Let me introduce myself, my name is Birgit Heaney. I have been in the aged care industry since 1990, in many varied positions. The role that I found the most rewarding was as a Lifestyle Coordinator.

I have completed my Diploma of Community Services (Leisure & Lifestyle) along with other certificates in relation to activities, aged care and dementia.

It has been a steady and natural progression to produce Quality Aging.


Quality Aging’s aim is to provide a resource for Lifestyle Coordinators and their staff to provide a person centred approach to their residents. To enable them to do this we have devised documentation and other resources with accreditation in mind. Print them up, fill in the gaps and pop them into your folders.

There are a wide variety of activities, along with relevant documentation to enable lifestyle / activities coordinators to provide a wider range of activities for  residents. There is also valuable information that may be sourced via our website which has been sourced from other sites.
Activities will be constantly added to Quality Aging as we are continually evolving to provide you with more and more choices and opportunities for you to create a fantastic lifestyle program.

We welcome feedback and suggestions as this will also provide opportunities for Quality Aging to deliver what it is that you need or require.

By working together and sharing information we can all make a huge difference in how our care is delivered and how the quality of life for our residents is improved.

      We have the same issue. We have a new account, however whenever we are looking at some of the information……….it says that it is protected and for us to join. Please advise, as we wanted the access to all those items as well

      Hello Brigit,
      I have just done my payment for this year wich was due on the 27/03/2022.
      I have had an issue with my card which I have emailed.

      I tried to pay the subscription fees for two years but could not change it.
      Would you kindly advise so I can do this for next year.

    The Chinese art & crafts projects- the red and gold paper, what type of paper? construction, card stock?
    Thank you.

    • birgitmh / November 18, 2021 at 9:01 am

      Hi Darnall

      I guess it depends on the project you are doing… for the lanterns I would be tempted to use standard coloured paper and it has a lot of creases and folds, construction or card stock may be to hard to get crisp folds.

      Hope this helps.

    Good Afternoon Just looking at Olympic Bunting Etc. I think they should have 2021 on them I know that they should have been held last year but it’s going to cause confusion to residents? Keep up the good work Linda Turner

    Hi Brigit, sorry for contacting you on a Sunday and understand if you can’t help today but I created a “Find a word” for my work newsletter and thought I was saving it but I think I submitted it … but to where? Do you know what I would have done?? I did a lot of work placing the words so cleverly and now it is gone? Can you help me? Thanks so much. Hope you are having a good day. Thanks, Barbara

    I paid for my subscription, but I cannot get into the program. I tried resetting my password, but no luck. Help!!!
    I love the program.

    • BIRGIT / May 28, 2020 at 9:38 am

      Hi Gail

      Have sent you an email.

    Hi Meggs,
    Thank you so much for all the excellent resources. Today I looked through some of your armchair travel items and in the Hungarian armchair travel area there is one picture about folk dancers in Hungary. The picture is a Turkish folk group I think, but it is not a Hungarian dance group. I grown up in Hungary and I were a folk dance teacher there. I can recognise the Hungarian customs.
    That picture is mistakenly in there, please check it out, because it is most likely from Turkey or from an other Balkan country.
    I really appreciate all your work , it just help us get through the months.

    Best wishes,
    Betty Szuromi

    Hi, We just love the themed bingo, like the pirate bingo and the football bingo. Have you seen an Australian theme bingo as my residents would love one?
    Thank you for all the ideas.
    Kind regards,

    • BIRGIT HEANEY / December 28, 2017 at 11:31 am

      Thanks Wendy, will see what we can come up with.


      • BIRGIT HEANEY / January 8, 2018 at 3:42 pm

        The Australian Version of Bingo has now been uploaded. (Apologies for the delay, I was on leave).

    Apologies Deborah, it is printing here so we are at a loss why it is not printing elsewhere.
