Cultural and spiritual care: An overlooked aspect of Aboriginal Aged Care in South Australia

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

Aged care for Aboriginal people needs to be understood within the social and historical context of colonisation, dispossession of land and culture, and economic exclusion. Health conditions associated with ageing often affect Aboriginal people earlier than other Australians (DTA 2017; AIHW 2011) This outcome is reflected in the Australian Government policy to provide Aboriginal people access to culturally appropriate aged care services from 50 years old, in comparison to 65 years for the broader population (Australian Aged Care Quality Agency 2014).
