The EARLI project is funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council (2022−2026) and is led by the University of New South Wales.
In this project, the researchers are investigating whether a combination of life story work (looking back over the life, using stories, photographs and other meaningful objects) and advance care planning (discussions about preferences for future care and treatment) can help older adults receiving aged care services at home.
This short video gives an overview of the EARLI project.
The EARLI project are partnering with a number of aged care organisations in Sydney and Perth, to recruit participants who are receiving aged care services at home.
The project team are advertising for one additional aged care organisation in Sydney, and two additional aged care organisations in Perth.
A recent pilot survey of older adults across Australia, has been completed. A summary of the results will be available here soon.
The EARLI project team produce a regular newsletter, with updates about the project. You can find current and previous newsletters here.
