Age Care is a growing area for AEPs, as such exposure to clients with Dementia as comorbidity is a challenge for AEPs working in this space. Dementia presents very differently in each individual and often requires a variety of techniques and approaches to maximise compliance and safety.
This professional development will focus on tips and strategies to working with clients presenting with various levels of dementia in varying clinical settings
The recording is of a webinar presented by ESSA on 23rd March 2015.
Starting as an AEP employed by an aged care provider in February 2009, Martin’s role expanded to currently being the Allied Health Services Manager. In this role he oversees allied health services across four aged care facilities, multiple retirement villages and therapy centres. In doing so, the AEP and allied health profile in the business has expanded greatly.
In addition, as an Associate Conjoint Lecturer at UNSW and a practicum supervisor for the Exercise Physiology program, Martin has been able to teach and encourage future AEPs to have the necessary knowledge and skillset to potentially enter the aged care sector.
Martin is very passionate that AEPs are perfectly suited to aged care and as the Aged Care Representative on the Exercise Physiology Advisory Group, with ESSA’s support, is actively advocating for AEPs to be more represented in the sector.
