Aged Care Diversity Framework

This framework was launched in December 2017. It sets out the actions we can take to make sure aged care services meet the needs of people from diverse backgrounds. It sees a role for the Australian Government, peak organisations, representative groups, service providers, consumers and carers.

This framework aims to make sure our aged care system is accessible to all older Australians.

It recognises that to support our diverse population, aged care needs to be respectful and inclusive of all people — no matter their background, life experience or care needs.

The framework outlines:

  • the common reasons why some people cannot access the aged care they need
  • how we can remove these barriers

The action plans for the Aged Care Diversity Framework help providers, governments and older people to address specific barriers.
