National Ageing and Aged Care Strategy for People from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Backgrounds

Page last updated: 25 July 2016

The Australian Government is committed to ensuring equitable access to high quality, culturally appropriate aged care for people from CALD backgrounds. A range of initiatives have been put in place that recognise:

  • a large proportion of older people in Australia were born overseas and the proportion of older people from CALD backgrounds is increasing at a faster rate than other older people;
  • changing immigration patterns in Australia will lead to changing consumer cohorts, which will impact on service delivery and require forward planning; and
  • barriers to accessible, culturally appropriate aged care still exist in Australia.
