Supporting Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Australians
Australia is a culturally and linguistically diverse nation with more than 150 languages spoken in Victoria alone. Baptcare’s Vision of providing communities where every person is cherished, means we aspire to be supportive of all communities.
We provide home help, residential aged care and family and youth services to people of many cultures, languages and countries of origin. Where possible we’ll provide services and care in your preferred language. For example, we currently have personal care workers providing care to our clients in a number of different languages.
Professionally translated information on aged care and health services are available in 18 of the languages other than English that are spoken in Victoria and Tasmania. This information is provided for the Australian public by several government agencies, listed below.
Aged care translations
- Translated information about aged care can be found on the Australian Government’s My Aged Care website.
- Translated information about a range of care and health services including dementia and memory loss, is also downloadable from the Centre of Cultural Diversity website.
Health care translations
- Health information for culturally and linguistically diverse communities can be found in the Victorian Health directory which is managed by the Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health (CEH). The CEH provides a range of translated communication across several aged care and health areas.
