INTRODUCTION

Who is Australia’s ageing CALD population?

Australia has one of the world’s most multicultural and diverse nations. With over 300 languages spoken, according to a 2016 report from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW), 1 in 3 older Australians were born overseas with a majority coming from a non-English speaking country.

Everyone in Australia has the right to access quality, inclusive and culturally safe aged care services that cater to their individual needs and respects their background and life experiences.
