Let's Make a Difference!


The number of multicultural people now moving into residential care has grown enormously over the past few years.

This has caused some difficulty for carers and residents themselves.

Lack of communication and understanding can cause stress, depression and lead to social isolation.

Can you answer these questions from the accreditors?

How do you know what your multicultural residents’ requirements are?

What if they are limited in the English language?

Not only can you answer that you speak to the resident and their relatives, now you can show the accreditors folders with all your multicultural information
