Benetas research leads to a smoother transition
The 'transition videos' were made possible thanks to a grant from the Psyche Foundation awarded to Benetas for research and the creation of resources to improve the mental health of our aged care residents.
Residents, families, employees and volunteers participated in the research and provided feedback on their experiences and the support they received. The residents who provided feedback were clear on wanting descriptive videos giving 'real life' examples of living in aged care, and how to take care of their mental health, from this the above videos were created as a resource for existing, incoming and prospective residents and their families.
