Actions to support lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and gender diverse and intersex elders

14 Feb 2019
Description

Everyone in Australia has the right to access quality, inclusive and culturally safe aged care services that cater to their individual needs and respect their background and life experiences.

The Australian Government has published the Aged Care Diversity Framework and a series of action plans to help the aged care sector to better cater for the diverse characteristics and life experiences of older Australians. The Framework and action plans were developed following extensive community consultations.

This document captures the voice of LGBTI people expressed through those consultations. It is intended both to help LGBTI people express their needs when speaking with aged care providers and as a resource to support people working in aged care to understand the perspectives of LGBTI people.
