Helping Hand recognises that aged care services must factor in cultural diversity, and must be culturally appropriate and sensitive if we are to properly meet the needs of all Australians.
People from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds may have needs that require specific consideration so they can have culturally appropriate aged care.
While they share with other Australians the range of needs that occur when they age, they may also have other life experiences which impact on their experience of ageing.
We will continually strive to meet the needs of all Australians, and we will develop planned, flexible and culturally sensitive approaches that respond to the individual as part of the cultural community of their choice.
