This is the first time I have had the chance to really talk to someone about what has happened in my life and how it has affected me.

– Paul, 86, Sandy Bay

I didn’t expect it to but being in the AgeWise program really helped me through a hard time. It was confidential and I really felt that my life experience was respected.

– Donald, 78, Glenorchy

Thank you so much… Dad has told me how much he has benefited from the sessions and wants to thank you for all you have done. He is in a better headspace than last year.

– Daughter of participant, Hobart

The mental health clinician has made a positive impact on our residents’ day-to-day living. Imalka was able to find the risk, build trust and implemented an effective intervention for our resident. I am very pleased with the dedication and effort she has demonstrated to our residents. In light of the strong impact of their input, I have also referred the team to a few other residents. I am confident that she will make a significant change in the resident’s mental health.

– Clinical Care Coordinator, South Hobart

It is a privilege to support people in their older years, walk beside them through change and empower them to find meaning and hope in their new chapter.

– Kate, Mental Health Clinician and Registered Counsellor
