The Department of Health has released new resources to support advance care planning and navigating My Aged Care for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) seniors.
The government resources support the implementation of the Commonwealth’s LGBTI ageing and aged care strategy to deliver more inclusive aged care support to people with diverse needs.
The resources include:
- A factsheet on LGBTI advance care planning providing an overview of LGBTI advance care planning issues.
- A factsheet on LGBTI advance care planning providing an overview of advance care planning requirements by each state and territory.
- A factsheet on finding a LGBTI inclusive home care package on the My Aged Care service finder. This resource covers the steps for LGBTI seniors to help identify and select an appropriate home care package provider that meets their needs.
