Both Alina and Meera are completing their Masters degrees at university and their time with MAC was nearing at an end. They both eagerly undertook their placement and their new ‘real life’ learning curve with enthusiasm, commitment and a zealous to learn. Very quickly and with accommodating ease they were immersed as part of MAC; engaging in all areas of work, research and programs.
In compliance with their work placement requirements, they presented their project, ‘ Identify 40 years of culturally and linguistically diverse ageing in Australia and to propose future development in the aged care services in order to provide culturally appropriate and responsive care’, to the MAC team. As part of their project, they conducted face to face interviews. The report content included;
- Purpose of project
- Introduction of CALD ageing
- CALD communities in Australia
- CALD communities in South Australia
- Waves of Migration
- Changes in CALD Communities
‘Congratulations to Alina and Meera on a successful presentation, and for their extensive research and efforts put into this project. We all took away new information and insights which will be beneficial in the Aged Care Sector, in particular with the CALD groups’. Elaine
MAC sincerely thanks them for their invaluable contribution, congratulates both of them and wishes them every success with their future endeavours.
