Living and Dying

No one should be excluded from receiving aged care and palliative care support, yet older people may face barriers in accessing services due to their culture, religion, finances, gender, sexuality and/or location.

ELDAC’s new ‘Diverse Populations‘ resources provide guidance for health professionals and aged care workers to support palliative care and advance care planning to improve the care of older diverse Australians.
