It Takes A Community, was filmed at Arcare Helensvale, in Queensland, Australia is one of a series of short films directed by Corinne Maunder of Fire Films that presents a fresh perspective on aged care.  This moving film looks at Arcare Helensvale’s unique relationship-centred approach to celebrating and supporting old age.  Strategy and Innovation Manager, Daniella Greenwood examples their philosophy and you to I’m sure will be touched at a heart level when she speaks as I was. Soo Borson, MD, Geriatric Psychiatrist and Dementia Specialist  also discussing the two major parts to Arcares success.

If you missed the the first film in the series, ‘Finding the Why: Enabling Active Participation in Life in Aged Care’, produced with Sociologist/Photographer Professor Cathy Greenblat, was created earlier in 2014. This film features the work of Colin McDonnell, Care Service Manager of Starrett Lodge of the Uniting Aged Care Organization.

Together, these films and more, will form part of Cathy’s upcoming project, ‘Side by Side: Love and Joy in Long Term Dementia Care‘. This project aims to highlight some of the major steps forward in long term residential dementia care, in selected aged care communities around the world, that are actively choosing to approach aged care in a forward-thinking and inspirational manner to empower residents.  Everyone deserves to live an enabled life, no matter what their circumstances.  It is up to all of us to actively participate in in a positive fashion, not only our own life but the lives of others.
