A new resource has been developed by Centre for Philippine Concerns Australia to assist aged care providers in delivering culturally appropriate care.

This resources aims to:

  • Provide a cultural tool to guide residential care providers in planning for cultural celebrations with their residents.
  • Explain the Filipino ways of caring, family traditions and culture.
  • Address the language difficulties of ageing Filipino seniors especially those with memory changes and reverting back to their native language.
  • Provide some case studies of Filipino seniors leadership in the community , their experience of using various forms of aged care services and how they maintain their independence at home and in the community.
