The Complaints Matter workshop will challenge you to actively seek opportunities to improve how you perceive and respond to complaints. Complaints present us all with opportunities to do better. It is important we recognise these opportunities and respond promptly. Using a number of case studies, this intimate, hands on workshop will focus on issues arising in residential care / home care. Sharing our collective experiences participants will explore how to approach complaints raised, including preparation, timing and options for resolution. We will also discuss a range of factors that can complicate this pathway, and options for managing these.

Bethanie on the Park open their dining room for a roast meal every Wednesday. If you would like to stay back for the $15 lunch special in ‘The Garden Dining Room’, please phone 13 11 51 to make a reservation.
