I work in aged care as a support person for residents and loved the book. It is not a one-sitting reading book, but rather something to read and re-read to get all the little gems from it.

Many of the scenarios resonated with my own experiences of working with residents, listening to their life stories. I often smiled (and laughed out loud) whilst reading the case studies as I could remember a similar experience in my own life.

The fact that the book is intended to be person centered and not based

“It is understandable if you are struggling to reconcile images of a smooth moving Justin Timberlake singing, “I’m bringing sexy back…” with the experience of working in aged care! Sexy is often everything that aged care is not. But by using the word “sexy” I am not referring to the high octane experience of being intimate with someone. Who knows though, your older adult clients may well want to talk about such things! How senior friendly to encourage this? What I am referring to is bringing the spice or pizzazz associated with respect back to our Western society that appears to have lost its way in valuing seniors.” 2 likes
“If you have ever felt slightly nauseous walking through an aged care facility, puckered your face against a smell, observed a grown woman clutching a dolly with desperation, felt a flood of melancholy as death fills your view – then you are in a perfect position to be a supportive psychotherapist for those whose lives are peppered with this everyday.” 2 likes
