Professional resources

At KeepAble we understand the importance of being able to access contemporary and tailored professional development for those working within the aged care sector. In collaboration with service providers, we have created a range of bespoke professional development resources to enhance the knowledge and skills of assessors, coordination, and support staff when working with clients to help regain and maintain independence and autonomy for as long as possible.

    What is wellness and reablement?
    Like Wellness, Reablement aims to assist people to maximise their independence and autonomy through time-limited interventions that are targeted at a person’s specific goal to adapt to a functional loss or regain confidence and capacity to resume daily activities without the need for continued support.

    Wellness and reablement Roadmap
    The KeepAble roadmap is a resource for CHSP service providers with the aim to guide them through completing the ACSA Wellness and Reablement self-assessment tool. Through self-assessment and by adopting the standards of best practice in the sector, organisations can deliver the best quality aged care enabling their clients to live more independently.
