3 President s report The past financial year has been very productive and challenging for Fronditha Care. The organisation is continuing on its path of growth and has successfully established the new facility in Newcastle and is building and developing two very important sites in Melbourne, namely Thornbury and Clayton. Community Services continues to grow and provide significant support for our elderly at home. From an industry perspective Fronditha once again has shown expertise and leadership in the care for Cultural and Linguistically Diverse elderly with key Federal, State and Local governments. Fronditha has also performed very well in terms of industry benchmarks and accreditation requirements while further expanding its goal of being a learning organisation. The Board of Fronditha, recognising the need to prepare for major changes in the aged care industry, as reported recently by the Productivity Commission s Report, but also to be ready for the changing demographics of the rapidly ageing Greek community, met for two days in April to develop the 2012 Strategic Plan. The issues discussed included: Key factors affecting Fronditha currently and into the future; Responses to those change factors; and Strategic alternatives for the organisation Furthermore, we have resolved to undertake in a major consultation with the community and other stakeholders in order to inform them of issues of relevance to Fronditha s viability and sustainability and receive their feedback. We believe that such information exchange with our consumers is essential, if we are to respond effectively to the challenges ahead. On behalf of Fronditha I wish to thank all Board members who have demonstrated a high level of commitment and dedication to their role as directors and to the many facets of the organisation. I also welcome to the Board Kalle Amanatides and Paul Mavroudis. Fronditha is proud to have two very successful auxiliaries, which work tirelessly to fundraise. We are grateful of the support provided by the Templestowe and Thornbury Auxiliaries for many years. Special thanks also to the Hippocrates Association for their continued support with donations and their hands on work at the facility level. The Board recognises the enormous value of volunteers and intends to give greater emphasis and strengthen this area in and beyond. I would also like to thank our donors for their generosity. Without their support our elderly would not be able to receive the quality service we provide. On behalf of the Board I would like to express Fronditha s gratitude to outgoing CEO Penni Michael, who over the last five years has strengthened the organisation, placing it among the leading aged care providers in the not for profit sector. It is with great pleasure that we welcome a new CEO, Mr. Lekakis AO, who will no doubt, take the organisation to further growth and development. He is supported by a loyal team of staff at all levels, who have provided the strong foundations we have today. It is inspiring to look back on the year of accomplishments. Despite the huge challenges ahead, I remain optimistic that with the support of the community, we will be able to grow and improve our services, responding appropriately to the needs of our elderly. Mike Zafiropoulos, AM, JP President Αναφορά Προέδρου Ο περασμένος οικονομικός χρόνος ήταν δημιουργικός αλλά και γεμάτος προκλήσεις για τη Φροντίδα. Ο Οργανισμός συνεχίζει να επεκτείνεται, με πλήρη επιτυχία ίδρυσε την καινούργια μονάδα του στο Νιούκαστλ και προχωρεί προς την ανακαίνιση δύο σημαντικών ιδρυμάτων του στο Thornbury και το Clayton της Μελβούρνης. Οι υπηρεσίες που προσφέρουμε στους ηλικιωμένους που μένουν στα σπίτια τους αυξήθηκαν και συνεχίζουν να βελτιώνονται. Η Φροντίδα συνεχίζει να εδραιώνεται ως ηγετικός φορέας στον τομέα παροχής υπηρεσιών σε Έλληνες ηλικιωμένους με πολιτιστικές και γλωσσικές ιδιαιτερότητες (CALD) σε συνεργασία με όλες τις κυβερνητικές υπηρεσίες. Η Φροντίδα με επιτυχία εκπλήρωσε όλα τα κριτήρια που έχουν τεθεί αρμοδίως για την παροχή υπηρεσιών σε ηλικιωμένους, πληροί απολύτως όλες τις προϋποθέσεις που απαιτούνται για την δραστηριοποίησή της στους συγκεκριμένους τομείς (Accreditation) και συνεχίζει να εκπαιδεύει τα στελέχη της και να προσαρμόζεται στις νέες ανάγκες και προκλήσεις. Το Διοικητικό Συμβούλιο, ανταποκρινόμενο στις απαιτήσεις των μεγάλων αλλαγών που γίνονται στον τομέα γήρανσης όπως αυτές επισημάνθηκαν από την Επιτροπή Παραγωγικότητας (Productivity Commission), συνεδρίασε για δυο μέρες τον Απρίλη του 2011 για τη δημιουργία του Στρατηγικού Προγράμματος Η συζήτηση μεταξύ άλλων συμπεριέλαβε και τα παρακάτω θέματα:- Σημαντικοί παράγοντες που επηρεάζουν τη Φροντίδα επί του παρόντος και μελλοντικώς. Αντιμετώπιση επικείμενων αλλαγών. Στρατηγικές εναλλακτικές λύσεις για τον Οργανισμό. Επιπλέον, αποφασίσθηκε να προβούμε σε ένα πρόγραμμα σημαντικών διαβουλεύσεων στη διετία με την παροικία και άλλους παράγοντες για να τους παράσχουμε πληροφορίες για θέματα σχετικά με τη βιωσιμότητα και την μελλοντική πορεία της Φροντίδας αλλά και για να ακούσουμε τις ιδέες και τις σκέψεις τους αναφορικά με τον οργανισμό. Πιστεύουμε ότι η ανταλλαγή πληροφοριών και απόψεων με τους τρόφιμους, τους συγγενείς τους και κάθε ενδιαφερόμενο είναι ουσιώδης ώστε να αντιμετωπίσουμε αποτελεσματικά τις προκλήσεις του μέλλοντος. Εκ μέρους της Φροντίδας επιθυμώ να ευχαριστήσω όλα τα μέλη του Διοικητικού Συμβουλίου τα οποία έχουν επιδείξει μεγάλο ζήλο και αφοσίωση στο καθήκοντους και στις μεγάλες και ποικίλες απαιτήσεις του οργανισμού. Καλωσορίζω επίσης και τα καινούργια μέλη, την Κέλλη Αμανατίδη και τον Παύλο Μαυρουδή. Η Φροντίδα είναι περήφανη που έχει δύο ενεργά βοηθητικά τμήματα, στο Templestowe και το Thornbury, που ακατάπαυστα οργανώνουν εκδηλώσεις προς ενίσχυση του οργανισμού. Τους ευχαριστούμε που για χρόνια μας υποστηρίζουν. Ειδικά ευχαριστήρια και για τον οργανισμό Ιπποκράτη για την διοργάνωση εράνων και για την ενεργό συμπαράστασή του στο ίδρυμα. Το Διοικητικό Συμβούλιο αναγνωρίζει την προσφορά των εθελοντών και από το 2011 και στο εξής θα δίνεται επιπλέον έμφαση στον τομέα αυτό. Τέλος, θα ήθελα να ευχαριστήσω τους δωρητές για τη γενναιοδωρία τους. Χωρίς την βοήθεια τους δεν θα ήμασταν σε θέση να παρέχουμε τόσο υψηλής ποιότητας υπηρεσίες προς τους ηλικιωμένους μας. Εκ μέρους του Διοικητικού Συμβουλίου θα ήθελα να εκφράσω την ευγνωμοσύνη της Φροντίδας για την αναχωρούσα Γενική Διευθύντρια, Πέννυ Μιχαήλ, η οποία για τα τελευταία 5 χρόνια ενδυνάμωσε τον οργανισμό τοποθετώντας τον ανάμεσα στους κορυφαίους οργανισμούς παροχής υπηρεσιών γήρανσης. Με μεγάλη μου ευχαρίστηση καλωσορίζω τον νέο μας Γενικό Διευθυντή, κ. Γιώργο Λεκάκη ΑΟ, ο οποίος αναμφίβολα θα συνεχίσει την περεταίρω ανάπτυξη και βελτίωση του οργανισμού. Ο κ. Λεκάκης πλαισιώνεται και υποστηρίζεται από μία ομάδα ειδικευμένου προσωπικού τα στελέχη της οποίας έχουν θέσει τα ισχυρά θεμέλια της Φροντίδας. Το να αναπολείς περασμένα επιτεύγματα σου δίνει ελπίδα για τις όποιες αντιξοότητες υπάρχουν μπροστά. Παραμένω αισιόδοξος ότι και με την υποστήριξη της παροικίας θα συνεχίσουμε να αναπτυσσόμαστε και να βελτιώνουμε τις υπηρεσίες μας, ανταποκρινόμενοι αποτελεσματικά στις ανάγκες των ηλικιωμένων μας. Μ. Ζαφειρόπουλος AM, JP 4 5

4 CEO S report The Fronditha mission is based on enhancing the well-being of elderly people. This coupled with the critical importance of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) appropriate care has been central to our philosophy. This year, amongst the organisation s many achievements, was the development of service benchmarks for the industry on what it means to provide Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate services. The release of these benchmarks has had an important impact. Over the past year, work continued in the area of dementia care. It is estimated that over 250,000 Australians have some form of dementia and as the condition progresses, the person often reverts back to their first language. In this report you will read about Fronditha s dementia specific programs, additional training and up-skilling of staff, partnerships with other agencies in the provision of CALD appropriate programs and involvement in research studies. have a fully operational facility in Mayfield, Newcastle. This is an exciting time as we continue to expand services in both residential and community care. The past year is also marked by extraordinary support from the community. Our appreciation is extended to the Thornbury and Templestowe auxiliaries, and the Hippocrates Australian Greek Aged Persons Association. Aged Care is complex and unrelenting and for this reason requires many hands. There are countless people who contribute to the work of Fronditha. I wish to thank staff for their caring work and dedication to our elderly, volunteers for their continued support and generosity, donors for their vital financial support and extraordinary charity and the Board of Directors for their vision, time and long standing commitment. I have had the privilege of working with and for Fronditha for more than 12 years and I have been honoured to serve Fronditha as the Chief Executive Officer for the past five years. In that time the organisation has grown from strength to strength and from its current sound position can look forward to continued growth for many years. This will be my last contribution to the annual report and I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks and best wishes to all those connected to this inspiring organisation. The Fronditha community has much to look forward to. Penni Michael CEO Αναφορά Γενικής Διευθύντριας Το έργο της Φροντίδας βασίζεται στην προαγωγή και ανάπτυξη της ευημερίας των ηλικιωμένων. Αυτό, μαζί και με την υψίστης σημασίας παροχής υπηρεσιών με διαφορετική πολιτιστική και γλωσσική καταγωγή (CALD) ήταν και παραμένει ο άξονας της φιλοσοφίας μας. Φέτος, ανάμεσα σε πολλά άλλα επιτεύγματα του Οργανισμού, ήταν και η δημιουργία αναφοράς μετρήσεων περί των υπηρεσιών για τον τομέα της γήρανσης στο τι σημαίνει να παρέχεις υπηρεσίες που είναι πολιτιστικά και γλωσσικά κατάλληλες. Η έκδοση αυτής της αναφοράς είχε σημαντική επίδραση. Κατά τη διάρκεια του περασμένου χρόνου, η εργασία συνεχίστηκε επιτακτικά στον τομέα για την φροντίδα ατόμων με άνοια. Υπολογίζετε ότι πάνω από 250,000 Αυστραλοί έχουν κάποιο τύπο άνοιας και καθώς επιδεινώνεται η κατάσταση, το άτομο συνήθως στρέφει πίσω στη μητρική του γλώσσα. Στην παραπάνω αναφορά, θα διαβάσετε για τα σχετικά προγράμματα κατά άνοιας που η Φροντίδα έχει δημιουργήσει, την επιπλέον εκπαίδευση του προσωπικού, συνεργασίες με άλλους οργανισμούς για παροχή προγραμμάτων που είναι πολιτιστικά και γλωσσικά κατάλληλα (CALD) και συμμετοχή σε εκπαιδευτικές έρευνες. Η Φροντίδα ήταν επίσης επιτυχής στην πρόσφατη αίτηση που έκανε για κυβερνητική βοήθεια σε δαπάνες για προσφορά υπηρεσιών και σε οικοδόμηση διαμερισμάτων διαμονής. Ο Οργανισμός έλαβε βοήθεια για τη δημιουργία 60 κρεβατιών υψηλού επιπέδου και άτοκο δάνειο 8 εκατομμυρίων από την Κοινοπολιτειακή κυβέρνηση για την περαιτέρω ανάπτυξη του ιδρύματος στο Clayton. Το κατόρθωμα αυτό ήταν σημαντικό υπερτονίζοντας ακόμα μια φορά τη φήμη που έχει η Φροντίδα. Βρισκόμαστε σε πολύ καλό δρόμο με τη τελειοποίηση του ιδρύματος στο Thornbury και το καινούργιο ίδρυμα στο Mayfield, Newcastle (NSW) λειτουργεί πλήρως. Είναι συναρπαστική περίοδος για την Φροντίδα καθώς συνεχίζουμε την επέκταση των οικιστικών και κοινοτικών υπηρεσιών μας. Η αφετηρία του περασμένου χρόνου ήταν η ασυνήθιστη υποστήριξη της κοινότητας. Ευχαριστούμε πάρα πολύ τα βοηθητικά τμήματα Thornbury και Templestowe καθώς επίσης και τον οργανισμό Ιπποκράτη. Ο τομέας γήρανσης είναι πολύπλοκος και σκληρός και για αυτό το λόγο χρειαζόμαστε πολλά χέρια βοηθείας. Υπάρχουν αμέτρητα άτομα που βοηθούν τη Φροντίδα. Επιθυμώ να ευχαριστήσω το προσωπικό για την αφοσίωση τους και προσφορά υπηρεσιών προς τους ηλικιωμένους μας, τους εθελοντές για τη συνεχόμενη υποστήριξη και γενναιοδωρία τους, τους δωρητές για την ουσιαστική οικονομική υποστήριξη και ασυνήθιστη φιλανθρωπία τους και τέλος το Διοικητικό Συμβούλιο για τη διορατικότητα, χρόνο και μακροπρόθεσμη αποστολή τους. Είχα το προνόμιο να δουλέψω για και με τη Φροντίδα για πάνω από 12 χρόνια και είναι τιμή μου που υπηρέτησα τον οργανισμό ως Γενική Διευθύντριά του τα τελευταία 5 έτη. Κατά τη διάρκειά τους, ο οργανισμός επεκτάθηκε και ενιδρύθηκε και από τη γερή του τώρα βάση μπορεί να κοιτάζει μπροστά για μεγαλύτερα έργα στο μέλλον. Αυτή είναι και η τελευταία μου προσφορά προς την ετήσια αναφορά και επιθυμώ να εκφράσω εγκάρδια ευχαριστήρια και τις πιο θερμές μου ευχές προς όλους που είναι συνδεδεμένοι με αυτόν τον οργανισμό που εμπνέει ενθουσιασμό και αγάπη προς το έργο του. Ο κόσμος της Φροντίδας έχει να δώσει πάρα πολλά ακόμη. Π. Μιχαήλ Fronditha was also successful in the most recent Aged Care Application Round (ACAR) in receiving 60 Greek Specific high care beds, and an 8 million zero real interest rate loan (interest at CPI). This was a sizeable achievement highlighting the reputation of Fronditha. We are well on our way to completing the Thornbury development and we 6 7

5 Fronditha develops industry benchmarking tool for the delivery of culturally appropriate aged care services The tool which has been designed to stimulate thoughtful and creative responses between carers and their clients comes at a time when CALD communities are aging at a faster rate than the rest of the population. Fronditha developed this benchmark as a result of its Greek specific focus, and has now expanded the tool to cater for a growing number of clients from other culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Fronditha s partnerships with tertiary institutions and other ethnic specific community based organisations continues to grow Fronditha is a learning organisation that continues to nurture partnerships with institutions such as Victoria University, RMIT and Newcastle University. The organisation provides placement for students of Nursing to gain an in-depth understanding of culturally and linguistically appropriate aged care and has hosted over 60 students in the previous twelve months. Fronditha is now an active participant of a new pilot project set on improving placement for students. Fronditha and the Chinese Community Social Services Centre have partnered in delivery of the Active Service Model to Home and Community Care services to the organisation s Planned Activity Groups. The collaboration has included a review of processes and the introduction of new and engaging activities for the elderly. Hunter Aged Care Achievement Awards Rebecca Brown, a staff member at Hippocrates Mayfield, was the proud recipient of The Hunter Aged Care - Care Staff of the Year Award, Rebecca was nominated by a resident s family for providing an outstanding level of care. Rebecca acknowledged the award by saying, this recognition goes to all my colleagues. Creating Connection through diverse activities Provided by the cultural music group Hellenopnevma, the Specialised Music Therapy Program, has been a great connector and highly engaging activity for over 300 residents and clients Music links our elderly to culture. It has numerous benefits as demonstrated by our Specialised Music Therapy Program. The program has shown that through familiar songs, it can connect people to their past. In some instances, people with advanced dementia may not speak at all however when familiar music from their youth is played, they may sing four verses, remembering every word. For people who have migrated, music of their birth country is an instant connector. It has the ability to rekindle memories. This is why Fronditha supports the Specialised Music Therapy Program delivered by Hellenopnevma. The group have regularly visited the four Melbourne facilities throughout 2011 entertaining the residents with their live music. Student placement from RMIT highlights Cultivating corporate engagement Emceed by Alex Perry, and supported by main sponsor BMW Group Australia, The Fabulous Fronditha Charity Gala raised 115,000 Fronditha thanks supporters within the community and the corporate sector for their generous donations and sponsorships including Medibank, Victorian Multicultural Commission, De Nova Group, O Neill Group, Delta Sales, Midas Insurance, AFL Multicultural Commission and Nafsika Stamoulis Foundation. Greek Consul Eleni Lianidou visits Templestowe facility Fronditha recognised for excellence in care awards Anastasia Hatzisalata was nominated in the Aged and Community Care Victoria State Awards for Excellence. She went on to win the Fronditha Care Outstanding Contribution Award and her story is an extraordinary one. Having been employed with Fronditha Community Services for over ten years she voluntarily opened up her home for the delivery of the Host Home Program which at the time was the only ethnospecific program of its kind in Australia. Since then, Anastasia has provided a home-like environment, and an activity program to elders of Greek speaking background with dementia while at the same time offering their carers a respite break. 86 9

6 Information Seminars continue to educate the community Fronditha s Auxiliaries raise over 30,000 for the elderly Fronditha s Planned Activity Groups change the rules of engagement Fronditha has implemented the Home and Community Care (HACC), Active Service Model (ASM), to Fronditha s Planned Activity Groups in July The underlying principle of the ASM model is working with the client rather than working for. In practical terms, this means allowing and providing opportunities for the client to do what they can for themselves, promoting independence. Fronditha has undertaken a range of activities incorporating the key principles of the ASM which include: A physiotherapist review of the gentle exercises program with the recent introduction of light hand weights and stretch bands to increase strength and endurance. highlights A review of the care planning process - helping participants identify goals important to them. Information sessions from a Greek speaking occupational therapist providing a range of falls prevention strategies for elders residing in their own homes and information about aids and equipment available to promote greater levels of independence. Participants have formed walking groups and are thoroughly enjoying participating in a wider variety of activities available to them as well as showcasing their own abilities. Storytelling and the documentation of life stories. The Planned Activity Groups are abuzz with lively activity, conversation, reminiscing and best of all, laughter! Fronditha is in its third year of offering educational seminars to the Greek community. These sessions are hosted in the Southern Region and provide information on a range of health topics and services. In 2011, seminars have been presented by State Trustees, Palliative Care Australia, Metropolitan Fire Brigade, Multiple Sclerosis Australia and Council on the Ageing. The seminars bring people together establishing friendships and informal networks. It encourages self-care and builds capacity amongst the group to be informed and know where to go for services and support when required. Further presentations have included the educational supermarket tour on reading and understanding the dietary labels of food packaging. The tour was conducted by Maria Atgiarias of Fronditha and Dietician Maria Nitsos from Central Bayside Community Health as a part of The Supported Access Pilot Project. Continue to inform the aged care industry on CALD appropriate services Encore presentation by Aliki Kyrkou at the Victorian Carer Services Network Best Practice Forum on Partnerships and Collaboration. The presentation was delivered jointly with Betty Kalambokis of Uniting Care Community Options at William Angliss. The Annual Christmas Luncheon, hosted by the Lower Templestowe Auxiliary has become an anticipated event raising over 15,000 in November This extraordinary result was achieved through many generous financial and in-kind donations. Fronditha thanks the community and the dedicated members of the Auxiliary for their efforts. The Thornbury Auxiliary continues to grow since raising over 15,000 from various successful events and extensive community support including event collaborations with Kyritsis of Oz Food Industries and Chris Gambrellis of M&C Seafoods. The Auxiliary is close to reaching their goal of purchasing a bus for the socialisation of the elderly at Anesi. Fronditha Hippocrates Aged Care in Newcastle reaches full capacity after one year of operation Fronditha Hippocrates Aged Care has moved from strength to strength in its first year of operation. Several achievements include: Audit where the facility was granted a full three year Accreditation By April 2011 the facility had achieved full occupancy Food services were graded A for food safety and compliance Fronditha Hippocrates have played host to special activities throughout the previous 12 months. One extra special highlight for our residents was the delivery of a chicken hatchery. For many this brought back special memories of farm life and caring for animals with many stories and fond memories shared between them. The Hippocrates Australian Greek Aged Persons Association connects with Fronditha Hippocrates Aged Care facility The Hippocrates Association has provided exceptional support to the Hippocrates facility and community life through a range of activities. Their hospitality has been a highlight for all connected to the facility as residents, families and staff join together and enjoy Greek cuisine regularly. This partnership has also operated at a deeper level and has worked to develop a strong community spirit. The Hippocrates Australian Greek Aged Persons Association raises funds for Fronditha Hippocrates Aged Care at the Annual Gala Ball. The Association has provided the opportunity for the community to enjoy special times such as at the recent Ball hosted at Newcastle City Hall where a great night was enjoyed by all. The evening was attended by dignitaries including members of parliament, the Greek Orthodox Church, Fronditha staff and a wide selection of Novocastrians

9 residential Ageing in Place facilities provide care to residents with increased dependency. This ensures continuity of care in a familiar environment. In 2010 Mayfield underwent aged accreditation auditing and was awarded the maximum accreditation for three years. Staff at all Fronditha facilities are trained in the development of care plans to ensure needs are identified and goals are met. Residents and their families are encouraged to be involved in the caring process. All facilities have registered nurses on duty 24 hours per day. Additional support services are provided by physiotherapists, occupational therapists, podiatrists and palliative care. Meals are prepared by cooks in on-site kitchens, and cleaning, laundry, hairdressing and other health services are also provided. The mobility of residents is encouraged through daily activities, and residents are assisted to enjoy the social atmosphere of the home. Independent Living Units Independent Living Units are an affordable alternative to public housing. The program offers individual accommodation to Australian citizens over 58 years of age residing in Victoria that are financially or socially disadvantaged as assessed by the Office of Housing. The Units allow residents the freedom to manage their own daily lifestyles in peaceful and safe surroundings. Low Care Ageing in Place High facilities Care provide care to residents with Dementia increased Specific dependency. Care This ensures continuity of care in a familiar environment.

10 community services community services Maintaining the independence of elders to remain in their homes Community Services equips elders to continue to remain at home for as long as possible. Assistance is provided through Aged Community Care Packages, Host Home Programs, Planned Activity Groups and Education Seminars on health and ageing, which keeps elders informed, independent and connected. Host Home Program The Host Home Program is a weekly respite service for carers providing a day of leisure and social activities for a small group of elderly Greek people experiencing early stages of dementia. The Program takes place in the home of a Greek speaking personal care worker assisted by a support worker. This respite option enables carers to have a regular, planned break and opportunities to attend to other priorities including their own interests and well-being. Individuals with dementia may experience an overwhelming sense of confusion or feel lost in a bigger activity group setting, particularly where other participants may not share their language. In contrast, the Host Home is a familiar environment with known sights and sounds, offering a smaller group setting where staff are able to provide a person-centered approach. This results in feelings of comfort and belonging with staff sharing the participant s language and culture. The Planned Activity Group Maintaining connection to our community is paramount at each stage of life. Fronditha continues to cultivate the socialisation of the elderly living at home through Planned Activity Groups (PAG). The program is funded by Home and Community Care services - a joint State and Commonwealth initiative. Activities include gentle exercise, discussion groups, games, musical programs and day trips. All these activities are consistent with the Active Service Model. The underlying principle of the Active Service Model is working with the client rather than working for. Staff act as facilitators rather than helpers and in practical terms, this allows and provides opportunities for the client to do what they can independently. By doing this, it is expected that the individual will maintain and even improve their functional level. While culturally this may initially seem to go against the grain as there is a level of expectation things will be done for us as we age, in time and with small changes, participants are reaping the health and physical benefits of this approach to care.

11 care and diversity human resources We are all too familiar with the ageing population of Australia which is consistent with international trends. What we may be less familiar with is the rapid ageing or our Australian culturally diverse communities. The proportion of older people from a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) background is expected to increase from 17.8% to 21.2% according to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare. The growth of this group is even more pronounced in the 80 plus age group. In 1996 there were CALD elders aged 80 plus. In 2026 the figure is expected to reach , an increase of 321%. In comparison, the Australian born population is expected to increase by 90%. By 2026, 25 per cent of the 80 plus age group in Australia will be of CALD background, that is 1 in 4 elderly within a residential facility are expected to require CALD appropriate care. The figures only tell part of the story for CALD appropriate care. Elderly report that they are less likely to use residential services, preferring home based services, the reasons for this being cultural preferences and practices, availability of residential care and their English language proficiency. It is not uncommon for elderly from a CALD background to be very frail before entering residential aged care, and only when all other home based supports have been exhausted. Cultural identity is critical when trying to understand the perspective of an elderly person. It is the sum total of their life experiences, all encompassing and pervasive, providing meaning to feelings, life goals, purpose, interests and beliefs. To experience shared understanding, our world view must be accepted and verified by others, whether this is our family, neighbours or formal carers. People of all ages need to be connected to others and as we age this becomes even more important. Fronditha continues to advocate for the importance of CALD appropriate services. Given the increasing numbers of elderly who will require CALD aged care services, the issue of measuring and assessing such services needs to be explored. Fronditha has developed CALD care benchmarks adopted by a range of Aged Care providers and published within industry reviews. The questions we need to ask are: Have we established relationships with ethnic communities to support the resident? Do we actively pursue or promote groupings or clusters of clients of the same CALD background in our facility? Do we have strategies or resources in place to enable socialisation in the resident s preferred language? Do we encourage and promote contact between CALD residents and their community? Do we ensure that key policies and procedures are available in community languages? Does our staff selection include criteria for bi-lingual and bi-cultural workers? Do our direct care staff undertake training in cultural awareness? Do we work with ethno specific agencies to deliver services to our CALD residents, provide information and advice or links with the community? Is the resident able to participate in ours, or other facility s/program s activities? Does our service provide opportunities for our CALD elders to express their spirituality? Do we assist CALD elders to access bi-lingual or bi-cultural medical and allied health professionals? Do we use accredited interpreters? Do we have strategies in place to allow accurate and prompt communication between residents and staff in urgent circumstances? Do we have a range of policies and procedures which include CALD appropriate care? In Aged Care people make the difference, and a true understanding of CALD services is central to caring for our elders. Fronditha supports its staff through leadership and training opportunities in Residential and Community Services leading to innovative ways of caring. Staff are encouraged to attain the highest qualification in their area of work. Our staff undertook the following training throughout 2010/11: TAFE training for certificate III in Assistant in Nursing leading to employment as Personal Care Workers Certificate IV in Aged Care Certificate IV in Lifestyle and Leisure Aged Care Funding Instrument Training Pressure Care Training Leading the Dementia Care Team training In-house training via the Aged Care Channel All Residential and Community Services staff have undergone Equal Employment Opportunity Training and Occupational Health and Safety Training and refresher courses. Fronditha continues to uphold the principles of the organisation s values of Listen, Respect, Learn, Teamwork, Initiative and Responsiveness consistent with the Equal Opportunities Act 2010 through continuous training opportunities. Fronditha creates a workplace free from all forms of unlawful discrimination and harassment through its policies, practices, behaviours, recruitment practices and access to training and career development. Recognition of rights within the workplace is important; imparting a greater level of acceptance of differences. This translates to approaches of care and attention of the elderly, recognising the vulnerabilities of this group of people. Occupational Health & Safety training provides a clear understanding of health and safety within the work environment. Staff are able to work comfortably and free from injury and sickness, maintaining a quality of life in and out of work while continuing to provide experienced care to Fronditha s clients and residents. In April 2011, staff at Fronditha Care s Galini Dementia Unit participated in an in-service training on Dementia care facilitated by Kingston Mental Health Community Service. The training focused on styles to assist communication when dealing with people with Dementia. This included mirroring, which minimises the need for verbal commands and confusion felt by the resident. One staff member said, it has been really helpful with our work. Now we often discuss an issue and try to see how the care recipient is experiencing the issue. Thornbury staff Clayton staff Templestowe staff 20 21
