Lifestyle Coordinator Courses

A Lifestyle Coordinator organises activities, events and outings for people living in a care facility. You might work in an aged care facility, a group home for people with a disability or other kinds of care housing. You might organise daily activities such as craft groups or games sessions or special events such as Christmas celebrations or Anzac Day commemorations. You may take residents on shopping trips or organise excursions to various locations in the community. Lifestyle Coordinators will work with residents to decide on the best activities to meet their physical, social and emotional needs.

Being a Lifestyle Coordinator is a rewarding job but you will be kept very busy. You’ll need to understand the needs of the residents in the facility and keep their interests and abilities in mind. You’ll have to be a good communicator and be able to work as part of a team with other health professionals, family members and colleagues. You might have to work various shifts including weekends and public holidays.
