    Preparing for the 5 Pillars Plan - Kerryn Dillon and Rich Ainley (PwC)

    Preparing for the 5 Pillars Plan - Kerryn Dillon and Rich Ainley (PwC)

    You may have heard our episode with Professor Joseph Ibrahim a fortnight ago, called The Legacy of the Royal Commission, in which Joe chatted about the impact of the Royal Commission’s final report and the Government’s policy response. Well this episode continues that conversation from a different viewpoint.


    On the show today we're talking to Kerryn Dillon and Rich Ainley from PwC, who as well as advising many aged care providers on matters of structure and management, guided the Government in the creation of the so-called "Five Pillars Plan".


    This episode is really about deconstructing the effects that this Government plan will have on the industry, from management, to care workers and to care recipients and families. It turns out, it’ll take some time for changes to set in, but in the meantime Kerryn and Rich have some ideas that can help the industry get ready for imminent change.


    If you’ve been listening to these episodes and wondering, hmm how can I help them keep releasing episodes? The answer is pretty easy! Just jump onto your podcast listening app and leave us a review with all your lovely thoughts about the show - they go a long way to helping us find new listeners and opportunities.


    And lastly, we’re fast approaching the end of the year and wanted to sow a little seed that we’re doing something fun and different for our episodes in December - we’ll tell you about more, next time.

    The COVID Response in Aged Care - Chris Mamarelis (Whiddon)

    The COVID Response in Aged Care - Chris Mamarelis (Whiddon)

    Today's conversation is all about the COVID response in Australian aged care. Now this is a bit of a first for us - we’ve been interviewing prominent and interesting folk from the aged care industry for the last year and we’ve yet to have a conversation focused on COVID. But helping us take an in-depth look at the response so far and the future of how the aged care sector can adapt to a world in which we live with COVID, is CEO of Whiddon Aged Care, Chris Mamarelis.


    One topic we focus on, which you may relate to or find interesting, is the confusing and problematic communication throughout the COVID response from various levels of Government. Chris and the Whiddon team have recently released a paper identifying some recurring problems and proposing possible solutions to mitigate this in future.


    Call to action! As we plan for our third season of the podcast in 2022, we are casting the net out for interesting topics and guests to feature. If there’s a topic or guest you’d like to recommend, then send us an email at acepodcast@silvradventures.com.au

    The Legacy of the Royal Commission - Prof. Joseph Ibrahim (Monash University)

    The Legacy of the Royal Commission - Prof. Joseph Ibrahim (Monash University)

    It's been 250 days since the aged care Royal Commission report was released but what is it's legacy? Today, we're delighted to welcome Professor Joseph Ibrahim on to the Aged Care Enrichment Podcast to share his thoughts.


    Joe is a practicing senior specialist in geriatric medicine, Professor at the Department of Forensic Medicine at Monash University, and creating informative content on dignity of risk and other challenges of dementia care via his website http://www.profjoe.com.au/ (www.profjoe.com.au)


    Joe holds nothing back in this interview and you’ll hear he’s very vocal about the need for aged care reform, particularly in relation to funding, standards of care, human rights, sexual abuse and the failure of successive governments to address systemic problems in the industry.


    There is a lot to unpack here, and much more than we can do justice in this very short teaser - you’ll have to hear Joe explain it himself.

    Dementia Futures - Dr. Timothy Rittman (University of Cambridge) and Ian Sherriff (University of Plymouth)

    Dementia Futures - Dr. Timothy Rittman (University of Cambridge) and Ian Sherriff (University of Plymouth)

    Today's episode is about finding new horizons in dementia care and it focuses on two different approaches in the UK that are having positive impacts on the period of diagnosis and life with dementia - from brand new technology that’s increasing the speed and accuracy of Alzheimer’s diagnosis to how a community led approach can transform the everyday experiences for people with dementia.


    We're delighted by two esteemed guests for this discussion. Firstly, Dr. Timothy Rittman from the department of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Cambridge. Tim is working alongside his colleague, Professor Zoe Kourtzi on an AI program that uses brain scans to predict whether somebody will develop Alzheimer's, and how fast the disease will progress.


    We're also talking to Ian Sherriff, who’s been leading efforts throughout an astounding number of organisations in the UK, including the University of Plymouth, to shape supportive and enabling communities for people living with dementia. Some of the fantastic work he’s done has involved doctors and dentists surgeries, airlines and airports, 10,000 parishes and rural communities across the UK.
