Migrant Families in Aged Care: An Intergenerational Perspective Seminar

Aged care workers constantly negotiate all sorts of arrangements with families. Often workers are dealing with a number of generations within the one family. Different generations have different views on the well-being of their elderly.

Cultural values impact directly on how perceptions can vary between family members. At this seminar we reviewed strategies to facilitate decision making and negotiation process in the aged care setting taking into consideration cultural and generational points of view and provide with best strategies in handling complaints from families from intergenerational point of view.
