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)

Dwelling, land and neighbourhood use by older home owners. (Positioning paper). /

by Quinn, Joanne et.al.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute 2009Description: PDF.Summary: "The ageing of Australia's population has been met with an increasing focus on care and housing policies for older people. Recent research suggests new housing approaches need to be explored due to changing housing ambitions between 'baby-boomers' and older residents, and the different attitudes towards housing among older people from varying Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds. ; The project aims to provide a better understanding of recent changes in the location, dwelling type, size of older home owner's dwellings and how these factors are influenced by the age of the occupants, their health, household type and cultural background. In addition to the size of the dwelling and land, the project examines the design and layout of this space and how this space is used as the resident ages. This provides a more accurate picture of how efficiently older home-owners currently occupy their housing stock and presents the opportunity to identify housing solutions that can improve the efficient use of housing stock, while ensuring that older occupants' housing and care requirements, and their preferences, are met. ; The findings of this study will provide information on the current housing situation of older home owners, and a far better insight on their needs and preferences for their housing environment, and how they utilise their housing space. These findings provide a means to better evaluate more space efficient housing alternatives, while ensuring these alternatives meet the requirements of older people and their households." -- AHURI websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
