This consultation is open to all LGBTI elders and their chosen families, networks, carers and supporters as well as aged care providers and other organisations who want to help shape what LGBTI inclusive aged care looks like.
The Minister for Ageing launched the 'Aged Care Diversity Framework' (the Framework) on 6 December 2017, which will be used to guide government policy on diversity-related aged care issues and aged care delivery. Part of the Framework will be an LGBTI Aged Care Action Plan.
The action plan will support aged care providers, consumers, families and carers by focusing on solutions and addressing specific barriers and challenges affecting LGBTI elders' ability to access aged care services.
Your input will help inform the content of the LGBTI Aged Care Action Plan. This Action Plan will influence government policy on LGBTI ageing, and lead the aged care sector to better meet your needs.
Please RSVP by 5 March 2018 to Heath Reed, email@example.com or call (02) 8568 1106
