Looking for a specialist Individual Wellbeing training provider?

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

Individual Wellbeing care training

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.

All of our wellbeing courses help your organisation ensure the key principles of patient centred care are at the forefront of your service. These principles include treating all older people with dignity and respect, empowering them by giving them a say in the care they receive, effectively communicating information 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. Ensure your care organisation’s staff are given the training necessary to understand these principles by gaining invaluable knowledge and experience with our Individual Wellbeing courses.

Our specialist courses

The 8 online 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 and cultural diversity in ageing courses aim to promote inclusivity and equality in all care environments. Teach your employees effective strategies for delivering appropriate care and support towards people of various cultural and linguistic backgrounds by understanding their unique needs based on the challenges they have faced.

Both our sex and intimacy courses teach care staff the skills and expertise 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.

The last of the content our courses cover in this section are reablement, dignity and respect, recognising changes in clients needs, and loneliness. These video courses focus on providing a highly personalised level of care, training care workers on how to ensure the aged person’s needs and wishes remain at the centre of the care they receive.

This teaches care workers how to treat older people with respect and deliver a higher quality of care as the service is perfectly tailored around them and focuses on what would be the most beneficial to them. Valuing their safety for example, as if a change in their needs is not met, or the psychological impacts of loneliness are not dealt with correctly, it can be detrimental to an older person’s health and recovery.

  • When you're working in the home care setting as a care/support worker, you may be the only person who sees a client on a regular basis. It’s expected that older people will have changes in their care or support requirements as they age or as their condition deteriorates so, as a home care worker, you are in the perfect position to recognise and act on these changes to ensure the person is supported appropriately.

  • Although you may not enjoy getting older, there are several perks. 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.

  • Whilst it used to be nearly impossible to find an aged care organisation that would allow people to move in if they owned a pet, the Times are changing. Today there are many organisation that invite people to live with their pets, and even some that have a full time 'dog on duty'. While we’re only just beginning to understand how dogs are helping those in Aged Care there’s no denying the improvements people experience when there’s a dog in their life.

  • 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.

  • Physical activity is critical to human health. Even the simplest movement is advantageous when compared to complete lethargy but, the more active an individual can be, the better their health. The Archives of Internal Medicine reports that even individuals age 85 and up who have led sedentary lifestyles their entire life can benefit from physical activity. Furthermore, they enjoy a better quality of life, they are healthier and they live longer when compared to peers of similar age that remain sedentary. Here are some key short and long-term benefits of keeping active.

  • 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. They are caught up in a world of wonder and moving at their own beautiful pace. Think about your own grandparents when you were growing up and the valuable things you learned from them. 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.
