Description

Australia is an amazingly multicultural society, as well as an ageing society. Increasingly, the ageing population, represents this incredible diversity, as as they access aged care, both community and residential, it is important that service providers are able to honour and respect this diversity.

Multifaith Practices is an Australian edition of a Canadian publication called Multi-faith Practices: Guidelines for Caregivers. Published in 2014 by the Research Institute for Aging at Conrad Grebel University College, the Meaningful Ageing edition amends the content for both Australian and aged care contexts. Input was given by key representatives for each religion.
