Keeping older adults well at home; determining active components in a community wellness program (2019)$7,585
Description
We are partnering with a not-for-profit community-based organisation (Community Care Northern Beaches (CCNB) Limited) who are providing a wellness (reablement) program to their client base. Pilot data from that organisation indicates that the program is having a positive impact. Through this project we will systematically identify the core components of the wellness reablement program that support individual clients engagement with a personalised wellness plan. We will also develop a comprehensive evaluation framework linking the core program components to client-level outcomes. The outputs of this project will provide data to enable the development of larger scale implementation proposals for future funding applications.
