Support for people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
If you’re an older person from a culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) background, or you’re caring for an older person from a CALD background, there are aged care services specifically for you. Many organisations now offer specific diets, activities, languages or spiritual needs, whatever your cultural, linguistic or spiritual background.
If you speak a language other than English, you can call the Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National) on 131 450 for support to talk to My Aged Care or with your aged care provider about your services.
TIS National covers more than 100 languages and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for the cost of a local call.
My Aged Care can help you access aged care information in other languages. There are also printable brochures, posters and spoken information in other languages to help you get started with My Aged Car
If you would like assistance with CALD information please contact one of our friendly team members on 8372 5198 to assist you with this process.
