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)

Residential and community aged care in Australia /

by Australia. Parliament. Senate. Standing Committee on Finance nd Public Administration.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. The Senate 2009Description: xiv, 153 p.: ill. + appendices.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: On 14 October 2008, the Senate referred to the Finance and Public Administration Committee for inquiry into the funding, planning, allocation, capital and equity of residential and community aged care in Australia with particular reference to whether current funding levels are sufficient to meet the expected quality service provision outcomes; how appropriate the current indexation formula is in recognising the actual cost of pricing aged care services to meet the expected level and quality of such services. Also included are measures that can be taken to address regional variations in the cost of service delivery and the construction of aged care facilities and whether there is an inequality in user payments between different groups of aged care consumers and, if so, how the inequity can be addressed; whether the current planning ratio between community, high- and low-care places is appropriate; and the impact of current and future residential places allocation and funding on the number and provision of community care places.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
