Diversity in Aged Care

The Federal Government’s national ageing and aged care policies move beyond mainstream to diversity.
The Federal Government has released its first national ageing and aged care strategy for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) people and for those from different ethnic backgrounds.

Initiatives include sensitivity training for the aged care workforce and a review of guidelines to promote access to advocacy for LGBTI people.

The strategy, recommended by LGBTI groups and the Productivity Commission, would also help to ensure all government-funded aged care providers develop policies and processes to address discrimination and prejudice, Ageing Minister Market Butler said.
