About the Self-Care Room
Self-care can mean different things to different people, but it is important in maintaining your physical, emotional, and mental health. Aged care relies on the quality and compassion of care workers in providing care to older people including older people coming to the end of their life. Self-care is an important part of being able to continue to provide care.
While there are some quality tools and resources already available, a place where aged care workers can grab a self-care idea, check out where they are in the self-care process, or share their experiences was missing. The Self-Care Room is the result.
As part of the Technology and Innovations program of work, we have created the Self-Care Room, an online resource for aged care. It will help careworkers and others in aged care identify their self-care needs and provide interactive and practical tips and resources to address those needs. The Self-Care Room was co-produced with aged care workers and experts.
