Accessing Aged & Home Support Services
With demand for Aged Care and Home Support Services from LGBTIQA+ people increasing, so too is the need for ageing and care services to be able to meet these needs in a culturally sensitive manner.
There are organisations and services that are taking a pro-active step towards better understanding and inclusion for older LGBTIQA+ people’s needs. Some are doing this by way of ensuring their staff receive awareness and sensitivity training, hiring of LGBTIQA+ workers, changing and developing policies that are inclusive of LGBTIQA+ people.
Catalyst runs information sessions for LGBTIQA+ over 50’s communities about accessing Home Care and Home Support.
If you would like to attend a session, or require information about services that support older LGBTIQA+ people, as well as what questions you should ask of an Aged Care provider, please contact Lucy, our LGBTIQA+ Project Officer on 8168 8000 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for a confidential chat.
