Shared actions to support all diverse older people: a guide for aged care providers

14 Feb 2019
Description

Australia is a diverse nation, and this is reflected in the diversity of religion, spirituality, sexuality, culture, socio-economic background, geographic spread, medical and care needs, and personal experiences of our senior population. The Australian Government is committed to ensuring that all consumers of aged care can access information, and receive aged care services, appropriate for their individual characteristics and life experiences. The Aged Care Diversity Framework (the Framework), launched in December 2017, is a key part of achieving this.

This is one of four distinct action plans developed under the Framework:

1. Shared actions to support all diverse older people, an overarching set of actions in recognition of the many commonalities within and between diverse groups.

2. Actions to support older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people

3. Actions to support older people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds

4. Actions to support older Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and gender diverse, and Intersex peoples
