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.

    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 Betty

      Apologies for this, as I get my information from the internet it is sometimes questionable though we try to ensure it is correct.
      If you would like to email me another suitable photo I can replace it. enquiries@qualityaging.com.au

      I have found where the photo came from … https://www.istockphoto.com/au/photo/bulgarian-folk-dance-gm524450573-52536452 .. it states under the photo Budapest, Hungary – June 19, 2014: Bulgarian folk dance group JANTRA performs on streets in Budapest. The group performs since 1996.

      Kind Regards
      Birgit

    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,
    Wendy

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