ITALIAN LANGUAGE POCKET GUIDE - A guide to basic Italian words and phrases for aged care workers.

In 2010 Co.As.It. Italian Association of Australia NSW CPP project developed a language guide to assist aged care workers in their communication needs with their senior Italian clients.

The guide is aimed at staff in both community care and residential care settings. It is a sturdy pocket-size booklet which is ring bound and laminated. It is durable, practical to use and easy to carry.
Content is divided into key sections: pronunciation tips; greetings; numbers; family and personal history; leisure activities; outings; food/shopping; personal care; body and health, medical information; a labelled diagram of a human body; client questions; cultural tips and a map of Italy with its regions.

This resource is for sale at $10 inclusive of GST (Postage costs apply). For more information or to order please contact CPP officers at Co.As.It. on (02) 9564 0744 or via email on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.



Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing acknowledges and pays respect to the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, on whose land this website was developed. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their ancestors and elders, both past and present and acknowledge their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We hope our work contributes to the wider project of respect and recognition between cultures in Australia. Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing receives project funding from the Australian Department of Health to administer the Partners in Culturally Appropriate Care (PICAC) program in Victoria.
