How culture influences dementia: Implications for care (Via Zoom)

Half-Day workshop
Friday 28th May 2021, 9:30am-12:00pm

Nearly 30% of older Australians are from a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) background.

The integration of culture into the Australian Aged Care Quality Standards and across several recommendations from the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety means that all providers have an obligation to provide culturally safe and appropriate care. This is no easy task given the increasing health and cultural complexities of Australia’s older populations.

This evidence-based highly interactive workshop will focus on:

  • The challenges and opportunities for services given the changing demographic profile of Australia's older population
  • How to negotiate diverse cultural understandings of dementia and care
  • How to communicate with culturally diverse families about dementia
  • How to access resources


$100 per person (excluding GST)

Who Should Attend?

  • Staff working in the community, hospital or residential aged care settings
  • People who are new to the field of aged care and care for older people
  • Staff working with older people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds
