Emerging ageing and age-related issues amongst migrant population in regional Australia

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

This chapter aims to explore the recent regional migrant communities’ perceptions of age related issues by interrogating the needs of these communities and the preparedness of service providers to respond to the needs of the changing demographics. Drawing on focus group discussions and interviews, this chapter highlights specific challenges associated with the concept of ‘aged’ and ageing’ among service providers in regional areas like Wagga Wagga in the Riverina region of New South Wales (NSW). It looks at what new aged care services, if any, are needed to accommodate culturally and linguistically diverse groups’ (CALD) needs and perceptions of ‘aged’ and ‘ageing’. Further, it discusses implications for designing more flexible and needs-based services for CALD communities.
