Positive Ageing Service

Healthy You Associates, Dr Gill Smith and Dr Emma Kirkby-Geddes have passion and commitment for promoting and supporting positive ageing for both individuals and for people working in health and social care settings. Their approach to positive ageing focuses on the development and embedding of self-care skills and in ensuring that person-centredness becomes integrated as a way of understanding the self, both personally and professionally.

With over 20 years of combined experience in applied health psychology and working with older people, Gill and Emma offer a range of services including:

Training
Both Gill and Emma are experienced trainers who ensure that their workshops are interactive and engaging for learners. They have developed a training package which will improve person-centred care knowledge and skills and develop the capacity of front-line care staff to work with empathy and compassion.

Workshops
Bespoke workshops are available to address well-being in later life, providing evidence-based health promotion/illness prevention advice, addressing issues such as: managing long term conditions, diet, exercise, and stress and pain management. Bespoke sessions which offer support for caregivers and those experiencing loneliness and social isolation are also offered.

We need to stop glamorising overworking. Back2back meetings, no lunch breaks & late night working aren’t signs of a committed leader. Having boundaries are a form of self care & models to those you lead this is important. Spaces in your diary gives time to generate new ideas.
