Lovely day at the Seniors Expo today.
Our friends at Living Made Easy have just announced their Living Made Easy Carers Award!

Anyone, at any time, can become a carer. For many, taking care of a family member with disability, an ageing parent or a terminally ill partner or child is the most important thing they will ever do.

Do you know someone in this situation? That special person who makes things happen with her/his unconditional dedication? Give them your love back by nominating them to win an amazing prize pack:

Just some of the design jobs I have started and finished in the last couple of weeks including a 16 page and a 28 page magazine, a 20 page booklet and a multi-page menu... no wonder I'm tired! And that wasn't even all of it. Time for an early Friday finish and a weekend off the computer I think. Happy weekend people!

Hi, would this system be suitable for an elderly cancer patient? She is capable of using a mobile phone - but when she is unwell, accessing/using the phone can be a challenge.

Did you know? Today is National Chocolate Day. It is nothing short of a special tribute to mankind’s greatest culinary invention. (Sorry, pizza.) If your day allows it, treat yourself to a little bite. You can try chocolate with a “high cacao” percentage and low added sugar which can be equally as delicious and healthy.

Today is International Artists Day. Living Made Easy has been lucky enough to have observed our Service User's artistic flair in recent years. Art portrays the beauty of life. It records history, revolutions, and rebellions, and sometimes is a means to escape them. This day celebrates all forms of art — paintings, sculpture, photography, architecture, music, and more. If you are feeling artistic today, we would love it if you would share them with us.

Healthy Lung Month is the entire month of October so, take a deep breath and enjoy! Many organizations have joined forces to educate the public about the importance of protecting our lungs against general neglect, bronchitis, mold, air pollution, and smoking. Bottom line: if we take care of our lungs, our lungs will take care of us.

Beautiful story of love and care

“I’ve been caring for Alice for 12 years and I don’t regret a moment of it”

Uncle David cares for his partner Aunty Alice who lives with dementia and is a client of Dementia Australia’s palliative care Nightingale program. As you might sense, Uncle David’s love and devotion to caring for Aunty Alice is unrelenting.

Uncle David and Aunty Alice will share their story in an upcoming film-led campaign on palliative care in Australia called Live the life you please.

Dementia Australia is a sponsor of the campaign which will feature Dementia Australia clients and other everyday Australians who will share their stories.

The documentary is expected for release in May 2023 so keep an eye out for more information and teasers.

We are proud to share this video with you during National Carers Week. Uncle David is one of almost 1.6 million Australians who care for someone living with dementia. We thank Uncle David and every other carer for their commitment and devotion.

Kim and Angela had a great day visiting Margaret Olley Art Gallery in Murbah. Kim really loved this specific painting and requested a pic with us in it. She had a lovely day out and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful art work, especially the ones that had flowers in them.

While some believe heart disease is an issue experienced mainly by men, Australian women are actually more likely to die from heart disease (the leading cause of heart attacks) than breast cancer. 💔

For many women or those assigned female at birth, heart attack symptoms will differ from men. Often, they're also subtle, vague and hard to detect.

Burning, tightness or pain in the chest is a common sign that you shouldn't ignore. But only half of women who have a heart attack report feeling it.

That's why it's crucial to learn all the symptoms experienced and seek help if you're concerned.

A healthy heart is your best protection against heart disease and heart attacks.

You can reduce your risk if you:
❣️ know the risk factors for heart disease in women
👨‍⚕️👩‍⚕️ talk to your doctor about 'cardiovascular screening'
🏃‍♂️exercise regularly — aiming for 30 minutes daily of moderate to intense activity
🧘‍♀️ find ways to reduce your stress — slow breathing, meditation, yoga and exercise to name a few
🥦 maintain a healthy, balanced diet that's high in fibre and low in saturated fat and sugar
⤵️🍹reduce your alcohol consumption
🚭 quit smoking.

We're continuing our celebration of Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week (SCIAW)!

We're profiling people who are doing awesome things to make our community a much richer place starting with artist, Cobie Ann Moore

Cobie is an Artist and Designer living and working in Sydney. She studied Design and Art Education at UNSW Art & Design graduating in 2015 with Honours.

As a visual artist, Cobie works in a variety of mediums including sculpture, drawing, painting and video. Two prominent themes she often explores are beauty and suffering. Much of her work seeks to explore the delicate balance between these two concepts.

"My accident didn't change who I am it just changed the way I do things. Drawing, painting and designing is what I love and is what makes me who I am. When people view my art I hope they see beyond my disability and respect me as a professional artist."

In the arts sector, when it comes to professional practice, arts practitioners with disability are under-represented. They earn less, experience higher unemployment and get far less professional support compared to artists without disability.

Congratulations to our Area Manager Belinda and our HR and Training Coordinator Josie for receiving your 'we think outside the box' pins.

Our pins are given out to staff who demonstrate our 'How we work together principles' through the work they do.

Belinda worked extensively on a project a few months ago which has helped us to implement 1 hour services where possible whilst still providing the 2 hour minimum SCHADs award requirements. Not only doing the right thing for staff but also for our service users.

Josie took great initiative in accessing training for our staff both ensuring we have skilled staff but also offering progression and development opportunities for our valued employees.

Applying your sunscreen before you leave your house is great. 👍
Re-applying every 2 hours is even better! 👏

Sunscreen can be easily wiped off or lost through sweating. You should re-apply sooner than 2 hours, if you've been sweating or swimming. 🏊‍♂️

Sunscreen is not a suit of armour. Always remember to:
👚 Slip on a shirt
👒 Slap on a broad-brimmed hat
🌳 Seek shade
🕶️ Slide on some sunglasses.

Writing in a journal might sound like something a teenager would do... 💘 But, did you know, it's actually a powerful mental health tool?

Journaling can help anyone at any age. All you need is a pen, paper and some time. 📝

Here are some prompts to get you started:
✍️ What are you grateful for today?
✍️ What challenges are you dealing with in your life right now?
✍️ What are your goals for the next week?
✍️ What was the best and worst day of your life?
✍️ What childhood memory had a big impact on you?
✍️ What would you do tomorrow if you had no obligations or restraints?
✍️ Where would you like to be in 5 years?

To help you stick to journaling, consider adding an event to your calendar each day.

If your daily stresses are affecting you more than normal, speak to your doctor or trusted medical professional. You can also call 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84) for 24/7 free health advice.

Journaling is a great low-risk approach to dealing with stress and emotions. So, let it out and put it in the book.

It's not always easy to find the right words when someone is struggling.

You might be worried you'll say the wrong thing.

Don't underestimate the power of simply being there and listening to them. It might be just what they need to help them through.
