Today’s abundance of technology has opened up a range of new opportunities for the elderly. Through social media, multiple generations can enjoy social interaction between friends and family, quickly and easily. This use of technology in aged care and ease of access plays a large role in engaging elderly Australians and can help with feelings of isolation.
Technology in aged care also allows older Australians to remain active citizens in the community through access to local services, such as libraries, community groups and local council.
Understanding the importance of connections with family and the community, Selmar’s experienced Aged Care trainers encourage communication through technology.
Technology plays a crucial role in today’s society and our trainers encourage students to stay up-to-date with the latest industry developments. Selmar certificates in Aged Care embrace teaching through technology with tools such as a state-of-the-art simulation lab. Providing practical experience through learning, the lab offers a realistic training environment to ensure work-ready graduates.
Selmar students have really benefited from the practical simulation labs. Liz Baker, a recent Selmar mature student says: “The simulation was great. I’m a practical learner so it was an amazing learning tool, particularly for the younger ones that were nervous and scared. It gave an opportunity for hands on experience in a safe environment.”
Selmar trainers work with students to develop customised learning plans that incorporate course unit work and practical placement.
Our experienced trainers provide a supportive and enriching education to train our next generation of aged care professionals to take care of some of the most vulnerable members of society.
