In this Masterclass, you will learn how to create high-quality One-Page Profiles. Using this simple tool leads to a dramatic improvement in care and lays the foundations for future improvements.
A One-Page Profile is a best practice tool first developed by Helen Sanderson Associates in the UK and is now in use internationally.
One-Page Profiles are the foundation of personalisation and can lead to positive change for people, whatever their age or circumstances. They provide us with an at-a-glance way of knowing what really matters to people, which can be taken with them as they move through services and come into contact with people.
For older adults in your care, it provides a record of how they'd like people to help them, including if and when they need care and support.
In this video Workshop Instructor, Carolyne Taplin introduces One -Page Profiles and explains how a profile helped care staff provide better care for her mother who was living with Alzheimer's Disease and Vascular Dementia.

These masterclasses are organised in partnership with Helen Sanderson Associates Australia and Lifelong Inspiration.
Carolyne Taplin is the course instructor for Lifelong Inspiration One-Page Profiles Masterclasses in Australia and New Zealand.
For the last ten years, Carolyne was a trainer in person-centred practices for Dementia Australia and the Eden Alternative.
In a long and varied career beginning in New Zealand Carolyne worked for CCS Disability advocacy and support and then taught ESOL and Literacy in universities, polytechnics, and local halls. She has delivered workplace training in wineries, plastic factories, auction houses, dairy processing plants to roading gangs, machinery operators, security guards, and carpentry students.
For a period Carolyne had her own business working with people who live with cognitive changes, such as intellectual disabilities and dementia, supporting social interaction and well-being.
In 2013 a lifelong interest in other cultures and languages led to a move to Australia where she had a short stint writing training material for a Registered Training organisation before realising she really missed students. Since 2013 and following her mother's diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease and Vascular Dementia Carolyne, gained qualifications in the Montessori Technique as part of a cognitive rehabilitative Therapy model she then delivered education and training for Dementia Australia and the Eden Alternative.
Her work has focused primarily on Dementia Education and Culture Change for health professionals and families, promoting care models over “a cure.”
Through her work with One-Page Profiles she believes that we can change the way we connect, relate, and celebrate who we are and who we all becoming.
When she is not teaching Carolyne can be found wandering the coast and bush in Southland, New Zealand, taking photographs or jamming on ukulele and African drums with her children and grandchildren.
