The Aged Care Diversity Framework was established to ensure that all older people experience a high quality aged care system
that ensures equitable access and outcomes and embraces their diverse characteristics and life experiences
“The Diversity Framework seeks to embed diversity in the design and delivery of aged care; and support action to address perceived or actual barriers to consumers accessing safe, equitable and quality aged care, while enabling consumers and carers to be partners in this process.
The Diversity Framework supports and extends upon the actions and initiatives already undertaken by the Australian Government and the aged care sector to build an inclusive, respectful, and person centred aged care system. While some aged care service providers may choose to specialise in
meeting the specific needs of some groups, all elements of the aged care system and all aged care service providers should be able to meet consumers’ diverse characteristics and life experiences”. (agedcare.health.gov.au)
