A worker at a Welsh charity is flying to Australia next month to speak about a unique programme he leads across Wales.
John Moore heads the My Home Life Cymru programme for Age Cymru to look at ways of improving quality of life in care homes for older people.
He is appearing at the 2013 ACS (Australian & Community Services Association of NSW and ACT Incorporated) State Conference in Sydney on 8 May.
Says John Moore:
“This is a tremendously exciting honour.
“I never imagined when we launched My Home Life Cymru in 2009 that I’d end up being invited to speak about it at a conference in Australia.
“It will be an opportunity to talk about the work we do and the My Home Life approach, as well as meeting and sharing the experiences of people who are involved in the care sector in Australasia.
“I’m also looking forward to learning firsthand about life in residential care homes Down Under as I’ll be visiting three homes in Sydney during my stay.”
The 2013 ACS State Conference is taking place on 7 and 8 May at the Grand Pavilion, Rosehill Gardens in Sydney.
John Moore is Programme Manager for My Home Life Cymru.
