Kitchen Conversation with John Dangerfield from Beacon Support
John Dangerfield from Beacon Support joins us for a chat in the kitchen today. He has been quite a mentor for us here at iNightingale and Phill catches up with him to find out more about what he does to help keep people at home.
Beacon Supports provides in home support to the aged and disabled who need a range of strategies for them to stay at home.
John is a professional service provider but recognizes that the community support that goes in to help the aged & the disabled stay in their homes is enormous. People dropping over with a lasagna or a chat is the linchpin of staying at home. Just a simple phone call from a neighbor to remind someone about their medications today can make all the difference to their safely staying in their home.
John discusses with us when families discover that they need extra help so that their family member can persist at home. It is often in crisis when the family are unable to cope any longer. John shares what he has uncovered the consistent patterns that emerge in families about how they cope and when it doesn’t work any longer. He also shares a real story of a client he has helped recently and the ways employed to keep that person at home successfully.
Phill provides some feedback on one of the activities that he talked about last week in Get Out Of the House. He covered Ageing Stronger Active Longer and how it all went in Ipswich last week.
Get Out Of The House
Phill takes a look each week at what is going on around him in his community, South East Queensland, to give people ideas about ways to get out of the house.
This week, he found a great website for the Ipswich community for things to do
Ronsley Vaz from Bond Appetit joins Phill again today. He gives us another great 10 minute meal that is delicious and provides great nutrition.

Chop the onion & coriander finely.
When the pan is hot, splash a little oil in and fry the mushrooms. Combine all the ingredients with a sqeeuze of lime & seasoning.
Lessons From The Study
This week, Phill takes a look at a great blog that he has come across, Coming of Age.
It is put together by Adele Horin, a journalist, and she has identified that there are a lot of topics the need to be out in the open and discussed. This blog is her portal to do that from the older Australian’s perspective
