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)

Caring for America : home health workers in the shadow of the welfare state /

by Boris, Eileen | Klein, Jennifer.

Publisher: Oxford, U.K. Oxford University Press 2012Description: xxii, 295 p. : ill.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index.Summary: Through a sweeping analytical narrative, from the Great Depression of the 1930s to the Great Recession of today, Caring for America shows how law and social policy shaped home care into a low-wage job, stigmatized as part of public welfare, primarily funded through Medicaid, and relegated to the bottom of the medical hierarchy. Care work became a job for African American and immigrant women that kept them in poverty, while providing independence from institutionalization for needy elderly and disabled people. But while the state organized home care, it did not do so without eliciting contestation and confrontation from the citizens themselves who gave and received it. Authors Eileen Boris and Jennifer Klein trace the intertwined, sometimes conflicting search of care providers and receivers for dignity, self-determination, security, and personal and social worth. This book highlights social movements of senior citizens for disability rights and independent living, the civil rights organizing of women on welfare and domestic workers, the battles of public sector unions, and the unionization of health and service workers. It rethinks the history of the American welfare state from the perspective of care work, all the while re-examining the strategies of the U.S. labor movement in terms of a growing care work economy. An unprecedented study, Caring for America serves as a definitive historical account of how public policy has impacted major modern movements and trends in class, race, and gender politics in the United States. ; Contents: Neither nurses nor maids : New Deal origins -- Rehabilitative missions : social welfare and medical models of home care -- Caring for the Great Society : the war on poverty discovers the service sector -- Welfare wars, seventies style : from disability rights to Neo-Liberalism -- Take us out of slavery : household employees become home attendants -- The union is us : organizing in the age of Reagan -- We were the invisible workforce : the triumph of SEIU -- Epilogue : rethinking home care : respect, dignity, and social rights.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
