Publisher: Bristol, U.K. Policy Press 2007Description: x, 236 p. : ill. ; 24 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and indexSummary: To understand contemporary ageing, it is necessary to recognise its diversity. Drawing on an extraordinary range of theory, original research and empirical sources, this book assesses the stereotyped conceptions of ageing, and offers a critical and updated perspective. The book: explores the diversity of individual pathways of ageing, the sources of identifications, migration and otherness, and the tension between social structures and personal agency; considers multidisciplinary and international perspectives as an important means of understanding the diversity of ageing, and the need for change in established notions and policies; addresses key issues, such as global ageing, migration, transnational community and citizenship; incorporates theories and findings from psychology and sociology, anthropology and demography, social policy and health sciences. "Ageing and diversity" is aimed at academics, students and practitioners in the fields of sociology, social psychology, health, and welfare. It will also be of interest to all those who want to challenge stereotypes about ageing.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Refugee and migrant young people with caring responsibilities : what do we know? /

by Ethnic Communities' Council of Victoria.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Ethnic Communities' Council of Victoria 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Background paper and sector consultation reportSummary: It is a matter of great concern that such a significant proportion of Australia's young people are currently attending to the needs of others, while their own important needs are not being adequately met. Also troubling is the fact that the efforts of these young people are not being duly recognised by the wider community. In fact, many young people are themselves unaware of the extraordinary nature of their caring responsibilities. This lack of recognition reflects the broader confusion that surrounds the definition of a 'carer'. This paper suggests that this is a term that needs to be redefined, in order that it may more accurately reflect and recognise the 'hidden' caring work that is undertaken by young people in our communities. ; At present, large numbers of young people are performing a variety of caring duties for family members and loved ones. This can include such things as property maintenance, household management, interpreting, intimate care tasks and assisting with the social, emotional, medical and mobility needs of another person. As our paper demonstrates, young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds are over- represented in such caring roles. This is due to many factors, including the increased prevalence of disability in refugee and migrant households and the existence of culturally held values related to disability and to familial responsibilities.

The assessment of older people with dementia and depression of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Backgrounds: A review of current practice and the development of guidelines for Victorian Aged Care Assessment /

by Haralambous, Betty | National Ageing Research Institute | Antonopoulos, Stephanie | Ledgerwood, Kay.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. National Ageing Research Institute 2011Description: 47 p.: ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Final report, July 2011Summary: This project sought to improve assessment practice of Aged Care Assessment Services (ACAS) for CALD clients in relation to dementia and depression. A key step was to identify available instruments and determine suitability in the ACAS setting. This process was completed through liaison with ACAS managers to determine current practices (via a survey and focus groups), and the identification of tools and criteria. These processes enabled the development of easy to access tip sheets to guide clinicians in their day to day practice and recommendations for further validation of instruments.Availability: (1)
