First aid is a crucial skill for anyone who works in the aged care and disability sectors. All of our direct care staff have Provide First Aid (HLTAID003 or HLTAID004) certification. At HenderCare we regularly offer in-house first aid training including CPR.

We’re pleased to introduce you to the two newest members of the HenderCare team; Joanne Money, our inaugural State Manager NSW & ACT, and Mandy De Cesare, our new National Disability Client Services Manager.

If you've ever called HenderCare in Western Australia, there's a very good chance you've spoken with Brooklyn. We thought we'd take the opportunity to introduce her to you properly! We sat down with Brooklyn and asked her to tell us a bit more about herself.

In 2004, we opened our doors in Adelaide. In the fourteen years that have passed, our team has grown across South Australia, New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia, Queensland, Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory. We’re taking a moment to celebrate our fourteenth birthday and acknowledge our team and the consumers, participants and referring organisations who we serve.

The Bureau of Metereology has forecast extremely hot weather in South Australia and Victoria over the next few days. We're taking this opportunity to remind you to look after yourself, and others around you as the temperature is expected to reach 41 degrees Celsius on Thursday.

The Museum of Love is a project launched on Valentine's Day in 2017 by Celebrate Ageing. It's designed to document the importance and presence of love in the lives of people with dementia. Yesterday, the Museum of Love launched its new website.

What a year it's been! As we reflect on the year that has passed, and look ahead to the year to come, we're grateful for the relationships we have with referring organisations, staff, friends, family, participants and consumers across Australia.

When older Australians and people with a disability start navigating the supports that are available to them, the process can be overwhelming. That's where Margaret comes in. As our Consumer & Participant Advisor, Margaret is here to assist when you need a hand.

A diagnosis of a serious illness has a multitude of consequences. There may be significant symptoms related to the disease such as pain, breathing difficulties, nausea, fatigue and weakness. Such illnesses often limit a person’s ability to do the shopping and chores, attend the many medical appointments required, and can potentially lead to social isolation.
