Resilience in Seniors

Resilience is at the heart of staff wellbeing, success and long term mental health, as they navigate their way through life's challenges, transitions and adversities.

The Resilience Doughnut provides a practical process for aged care organisations seeking to help staff with stress, pressure or challenging agendas – Raising their wellbeing, morale and resilience so they can connect in a positive workplace climate. Fostering wellbeing at an individual, team and whole-organisation level has the potential to build resilient and positive aged care organisations with the tools to grow and flourish.

We provide a range of training and development opportunities for individuals, small groups and whole teams, including specific training and development for current and aspiring middle, senior and executive leaders. We are confident that you and your colleagues, or even patients, will find The Resilience Doughnut to be a powerful tool to improve the personal and professional wellbeing of your aged care facility. By providing strategies to help staff with life’s challenges and times of change, both in their work and personal life, you enable them to survive and thrive.

Building a Positive Workplace Climate – For Everyone

When it comes to mental health and wellbeing, it is common for organisations to focus only on those staff facing difficulties, but this doesn’t build the resiliency skills needed for all staff to achieve long-term wellbeing. Furthermore a reactionary response to problems in staff as they arise does not build a positive workplace climate, but rather highlights the difficulties faced, creating a depressed and problem saturated climate. The Resilience Doughnut provides a powerful, yet easy to use, model for all staff, with a solution focused, strengths-based practice at its core.

Workplaces with a positive climate practice a whole-organisation approach to the development of wellbeing and emotional resilience, which involves every team member in their natural interactions each day. This is what we help you to achieve.

Whole Organisation Pathway for Workforce Resilience

You can, of course, just use The Resilience Doughnut with staff on a one-to-one or small group basis within your role, but it can also provide a whole-organisation, embedded, sustainable and fully evaluated approach to staff resilience. We provide a multi-level programme of training and development, which provides a cost-effective and sustainable approach for aged care organisations which works. And, including the Resilience Report enables you to evaluate the impact of all your workplace wellbeing work.

We know that many aged care organisations are already doing some positive work to improve the emotional resilience of staff. This is why The Resilience Doughnut actually underpins and enhances this work. In fact, organisations regularly tell us that The Resilience Doughnut provides a context and focus for all their mental health and wellbeing work.
