Wellbeing Clinic for Older Adults
The Wellbeing Clinic for Older Adults is a free and confidential counselling and support service for older adults living in residential settings.
Like other countries, Australia is experiencing a rapid increase in the number of older persons. By 2031, nearly a quarter of the population is projected to be over 65. Older adults, particularly those living in residential care can have difficulties accessing services to help maintain or improve emotional wellbeing.
The clinic provides counselling and befriending services. Counselling services are delivered face-to-face or via telehealth by postgraduates studying psychology, counselling or social work. The clinic also provides training in mental health practices for late life and conducts research on the psychology of ageing.
The Wellbeing Clinic for Older Adults is located at Swinburne University of Technology, The George Building, Level 4.
