Bushfire Recovery Workshops
Two years on from the devastating bushfires of 2019, locals are still putting the pieces back together. The grass may be greener but for many, the trauma remains near the surface.
A series of free ‘Regrowth’ workshops seek to help regional communities work through the fallout of multiple natural disasters and learn how to prepare emotionally for similar threats.
Featuring a wide range of support services and speakers, morning tea and lunch will be provided. There will be time to socialise, and participants will work on a collective art project on the theme of ‘putting the pieces back together’.
Upcoming Events in 2022
HealthWISE Awarded Ipswich Honour
HealthWISE was thrilled to be named Ipswich’s Health & Wellness Business of the Year at the Ipswich 2021 Business Excellence Awards, hosted by the Ipswich Chamber of Commerce & Industry.
“I could not be prouder of the team’s efforts to support our community here in Ipswich, in particular our most vulnerable and marginalised individuals,” HealthWISE QLD business development lead Naomi Petty said.
“It takes a very special individual to do what our clinicians do each and every day with such dignity and humility.”
Ezidi Refugee Video Resources
HealthWISE, funded by the Hunter New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network, created a series of 11 short videos to help explain the Australian healthcare system to Ezidi humanitarian refugees in Armidale.
Caring About Dementia
HealthWISE is actively involved in Dementia Care in the New England area providing a Memory Assessment Program referral pathway for GPs, advice and support for carers of people living with dementia, and a Dementia Carers Support Group.
HealthWISE has also produced a series of videos – Caring about Dementia, for carers of people living with dementia with some tips and hints that may help. These videos can be watched at a time that suits during the journey in caring for someone with dementia.
