Cultural Diversity in Aged Care
Belvedere Aged Care believes is an inclusive and diverse environment that people of all cultural orientations can freely express who they are; safe from abuse, harassment or unfair criticism. Embracing cultural diversity at work creates a workplace in which people of all backgrounds and cultures feel included, welcome and valued. Inclusion involves respecting individual differences and capturing the advantages they provide.
Belvedere Aged Care provides a staff mix educated and aware of differences. Staff education and training is provided frequently and discussions held regarding cultural diversity including each residents’ traditions and religious practices. Inclusion does not limit itself to language, culture and faith but sexual orientation and disabilities.
