It Takes A Community, set at Arcare Helensvale, in Queensland, Australia is one of a series of short films directed by Corinne Maunder 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.
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, and can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZN1C....
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 choosing to approach aged care in a forward-thinking and inspirational way to empower residents and enable them to continue to actively participate in life.
