Jane Turner

Jane’s professional experience spans 25 years of working with older people. She is a recognized expert in the field, having worked in acute psychogeriatric inpatient settings and aged care psychiatry community teams in her public sector roles, where she has worked extensively in residential care settings (nursing homes and hostels) across Sydney, since 1994. Jane loves her work and is committed to empowering people as they age. Old age doesn’t have to be about sickness, disability, depression or institutionalisation. Old age can be amazing!

She has worked in part-time Private Practice since 2004, and full-time from 2010. She provides ongoing Clinical Psychology consultancy to a number of large Aged Care providers in Sydney.
