Finding the why in aged care
Finding the why; enabling active participation in life in aged care is a new short film featuring the work of internationally-renowned photographer Cathy Greenblat and Starrett Lodge in NSW.
Starrett Lodge is an award-winning aged care home on the Central Coast that is becoming renowned for its person-centred approach to dementia care. Earlier this year Cathy spent a week at the lodge, using photography and film to document the exceptional care being offered to residents with dementia and adding to her growing body of work illustrating the possibilities for living a fulfilling life with dementia. Finding the why features just some of the many images she captured of the joy, laughter and loving care at Starrett Lodge. The film was produced by Corinne Maunder from Fire Films, Melbourne for UnitingCare Ageing, with support from the Australian Journal of Dementia Care and NSW/ACT Dementia Training Study Centre.
