Aged Care Services.jpg

Following the Australian Government’s Apology to former Child Migrants and Forgotten Australians in 2009, the Australian Department of Health has issued an information package to help Aged Care service providers develop a better understanding for members of those groups entering residential care.
 
The objectives of the package are:

  • Increasing understanding about Forgotten Australians, former Child Migrants and Stolen Generations and how they may feel about accessing aged care services
  • Providing guidance on how to respond to some issues that members of these groups might raise when accessing aged care services
  • Enabling aged care service providers to find out more about Forgotten Australians, former Child Migrants and Stolen Generations
  • Reducing the tensions and complexities that carers may experience in providing aged care services to Forgotten Australians, former Child Migrants and Stolen Generations.

If you are aware of a former Child Migrant who is now in residential care, and you feel their care providers might benefit from this information package, it is available online here or contact CMT on 1800 040509.
