14 JULY 2022

Today at 1pm AEST!

Today at 1pm AEST, join us and our special guest Leanne Beagley, CEO of Mental Heath Australia.

The UN International Day of Friendship is later this month (30 July) and so it is a good time to talk about the value and power of friendship. Leanne will speak to us about recognising loneliness (and some of the misconceptions about that, especially in aged care settings) as well as friendship and how we can be a friend to others and to ourselves as part of caring for our mental health.

Everyone is welcome! But don’t forget to register to attend live and to receive the replay.



Meaningful Ageing Australia is a registered charity and the national peak body for championing the spiritual care and emotional wellbeing of older people receiving care in residential and community aged care settings.

Spiritual care ensures that each older person’s spirituality is supported.

Spirituality is about how we create meaning, hope, purpose and connection in our lives.

For some, that might include religion and expressions of cultural faith. For others, it might be the peace and emotional wellbeing they experience through a connection with nature, or creativity, or through meditation or of being of service to others.

Meaningful Ageing Australia creates practical resources and education events to support aged care providers to build staff capability so that they can integrate emotional support and spiritual care into their day-to-day work.
