New resource for diverse aged care
A new resource has been launched to help aged care providers deliver more inclusive and diverse care.
The Inclusive Health and Ageing website, set up by Not For Profit provider Bolton Clarke with Government funding, includes information, resources, and research for aged care professionals and consumers about caring for people with diverse backgrounds.
According to Bolton Clarke Principal Advisor Wellness and Reablement Kath Paine, the site helps carers better understand people’s individual needs through the intersection of diversity characteristics.
“We know person-centred care considers an individual’s needs, preferences and values, drawing on their strengths to enhance participation in their healthcare.
