Project Overview
The ‘Community Enrichment Program’ enabled technology training for selected aged care volunteers in Stanthorpe, Queensland, so that they may assist frail or otherwise debilitated aged care residents to use computer tablets for personalised learning activities. A main aim was to enhance the quality of life for residents and recipients of aged care services, as well as further develop the digital skills and capabilities of volunteers who work in rural aged care.
