Kitchen Conversation with Vicki Cain from Anglicare
As our very first episode of the iNightingale podcast, we catch up with Vicki Cain from Anglicare.
Anglicare is a great not-for-profit organization that advocates for those in need. Their missions vary from family violence prevention to emergency relief. It also includes community care for the aged and disabled.
Vicki talks about the services and care that she coordinates for those people in the community needing extra support, specifically home care support services. She reaches those people through the network of referrals like hospitals, relatives and general practitioners.
Vicki coordinates are range of skills for a variety of home care support services from post-operative care to mental health support in the community. Anglicare partners with a great many organizations to provide far-reaching support to meet the needs of their clients.
Phill talks to Vicki about how services like Anglicare keep you at home , ageing in place with home care support services. Vicki also introduces one her star carers: a little guy who is a Daschund!
This week, we take a look at some interesting news in aged care that has come across our desks here at iNightingale.
We have discovered the concept of a Memory Café that specifically targets activities that are assisting those who are suffering with cognitive disorders, like Alzheimers & Dementia.
It also helps the family caregivers in a positive and social setting.

Lessons From The Study
This week, Phill covers the tips and tricks to limit the chances of contracting the ‘flu.
In Phill’s emergency department, he’s starting to see a lot of patients come through with flu-like illnesses. This can be devastating to the very old and those with chronic diseases.
So with winter well & truly here, it’s high time to cover the strategies to avoid this Dreaded Lurgi!
Today, Phill takes a look at a very moving documentary on dementia.
