Ageing and cultural diversity strategy : policy proposal /

by Ethnic Communities' Council of Victoria.

Publisher: Carlton, Vic. Ethnic Communities' Council of Victoria 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: February 2011 Bibliography : p. 16Summary: In Victoria the increasingly multicultural ageing population presents a significant policy challenge. It is imperative that the government and opposition parties commit to an Ageing and Cultural Diversity Strategy. This strategy sets out key policy recommendations across a range of aged care areas including community care, residential aged care, workforce diversity, ethnic carer support, elder abuse prevention and positive, active ageing. Older non-English speaking people prefer to stay living at home but many do not access services. Others may find themselves socially isolated in residential aged care facilities that cater mainly for English speakers. This strategy would be of significant benefit to people from non-English speaking and culturally diverse backgrounds as they become older and frailer. It is designed to assist decision makers develop cultural diversity policies and provides a cost-effective and quality continuum of care for older people from culturally diverse backgrounds.Availability: (1)
