Looking for a specialist Individual Wellbeing training provider?

Here, at Altura Learning, we provide social care companies with access to specialist Individual Wellbeing care training courses.

Individual Wellbeing

Providing person centred care should be the top priority for any care organisation. Altura Learning’s specially curated Individual Wellbeing courses have been put into one place to give your organisation a toolkit of essential courses for promoting positive health and wellbeing in aged care.

Our online wellbeing courses ensure that the key principles of care and person-centred care are at the heart of the service you provide. These principles include treating all people in your care with dignity and respect, empowering them by giving them a choice in the care they receive, effectively communicating about their safety, and valuing confidentiality by keeping personal information private.

Exceptional person centred care requires all these principles to be upheld correctly and appropriately. Improve the quality of care your staff deliver and provide them with invaluable knowledge and experience by choosing our Individual Wellbeing training courses.

Our specialist courses

The 8 training courses we currently offer focus on a range of different content areas aimed to help promote an individual’s health and wellbeing.

Our culturally inclusive care, rainbow of difference and care leavers in aged care courses aim to promote inclusivity and equality in all care environments. Teach your employees effective strategies for delivering appropriate care and support towards people from the LGBTI+ community, Australians raised in institutional care or foster homes and people from various cultural and linguistic backgrounds.

Your staff will develop skills and abilities needed to understand the challenges that these groups of people have faced, and will be capable of giving care that is tailored to each of their unique needs.

Both our sex and intimacy courses teach care staff the skills and expertise required to provide personalised care in a professional and safe manner, by demonstrating the correct ways to allow intimacy in a residential care environment. This allows older people to maintain their privacy, dignity and independence as they still have the freedom to meet their more intimate needs in an aged care setting.

The last of our courses in this section are centred around reablement, recognising changes in clients needs and loneliness. These courses focus on providing a personal level of care, training care workers on how to assess and monitor behaviours in individuals and implement strategies to support them effectively.

This teaches care workers how to treat people in aged care with respect and value in a way that prioritises their safety, as not meeting a change in their needs or dealing with the psychological impacts of loneliness can be detrimental to an older person’s health and recovery.

Now that your children are grown, and you're no longer working, you finally have more time to do the things you’ve always wanted to do. For example, you could explore new hobbies. Unfortunately, some senior citizens do their hobbies, alone, failing to interact with others. As a result, they suffer from isolation, which can also affect both their physical health and mental well-being. Here are Five of the Best Social Activities for Seniors.

  • Communication is never easy. Taking a thought from your mind, translating it into words, and then having those words heard, and properly interpreted into meaning by another person is going to be difficult under the best of circumstances. One way to make the process easier, though, is for the listener to be active. Active listening is about more than hearing the words someone is speaking; it's about being really and truly involved in the conversation.

  • We cherish special life milestones like birthdays and anniversaries for a reason. They represent continuity and growth, the unbroken threads that shape a person's life. They are a sign of triumph over adversity, of strength, and of hope, particularly in the later years when they represent decades of experience. The importance of celebrating life is reflected in physical and mental health, community and family relationships and a healthy self-concept. Each of these is essential to an optimal quality of life, and here's how they work.

  • Grandparents fill an irreplaceable role in a child's development: Pillars of wisdom and sources of support, they possess a unique understanding of a family's history and traditions. They love their grandchildren with unconditional affection that matches that of a child's own parents, and though some families are separated by distance or circumstance, being able to connect with a grandchild frequently fosters a relationship that can influence a child to define values, flourish in self-confidence and strengthen the bonds of family. Here is why Grandparents are key to Children's Development.

  • Children and the elderly have a remarkable connection with one another that can be described as magical. The magic that really stems from this is the intergenerational bond and the way they let themselves live quite simply in the moment.

How children can help improve the quality of aged care at home includes many benefits and together they enjoy a youthful freedom. Lets explore the benefits of these two groups interacting together.
