Elder Abuse – CALD Perspectives

11 February 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


This innovative workshop provides an opportunity for aged care providers and generalist organisations to further explore the complex issues around Elder Abuse and/or neglect from a CALD (Culturally and Linguistically Diverse) perspective.

The session aims to assist in identifying areas to address, developing knowledge and strategies how to best respond in a culturally appropriate manner when dealing with the mistreatment of older people from CALD community groups.

This workshop is ideally suited to Managers, Staff, Generalist Organisations and Aged Care Workers in both residential and community care.

The workshop will cover:

  • Cultural aspects of Elder Abuse
  • Identifying Elder Abuse in your work setting
  • How to recognise when cultural responsiveness ends and abuse begins
  • Using the MAC ‘4As’ model as an intervention strategy

This session will be presented by two of MAC educators: Agnieszka Chudecka and Joanna Golaszewska.
