by Ethnic Communities' Council of Victoria.

Publisher: Carlton, Vic. Ethnic Communities' Council of Victoria 2011Description: PDF.Other title: ECCV discussion paper ; vol. 1, no. 2.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Appendices pp. 35-36 Bibliography pp. 37-38Summary: Victoria has an ageing multicultural population which is an undeniable reality. That dementia is not understood well by people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities is challenging for aged care policy makers and service providers. Many non-English speaking people do not recognise the early signs of dementia. When people with diverse backgrounds do not access support services until they reach the point of crisis, the challenge for governments becomes more apparent. The Victorian and Australian Governments have taken the initiative to develop a number of policies that provide effective dementia care pathways and related aged care services for Victorians. People from culturally diverse backgrounds who are living with dementia are at risk of missing out on quality dementia care if they do not understand the concept of dementia and the nature of dementia care.Availability: (1)
