These multicultural profiles aim to create a tool to provide aged care providers with
- An awareness of the cultural and linguistically diverse needs of older persons from various backgrounds.
- It also strives to enable the professional capability and progress of staff in the provision of culturally inclusive care; and
- The organisation’s compliance with the Residential Care Standards and National Care Standards as they pertain to the issue of cultural and linguistic needs.
The profiles provide beneficial information about a variety of subjects and resources.
These are guides only and are not intended to replace one stereotype of culture with another; they are only intended to provide some insight into different cultures. Nor do they reduce the importance of you establishing the individual cultural needs of each person as part of your care planning process.
In an effort to continue to provide you with updated information of these profiles and improve the contents, we encourage readers to provide feedback by contacting Quality Aging or leave a message in the comment section below.
More profiles will be added in due course. If there is a nationality that you would like as soon as possible feel free to contact us or leave a message below in the comments.
