Abstract

Provision of care for older people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds is increasing as a sizable population worldwide is, and will be, ageing outside their heritage culture. Research shows that older people ageing in a foreign land experience a greater level of social isolation due to the dual challenge of dealing with loss of cultural connectedness over and above ageing. Yet, how best to turn social isolation into social connectedness is far from clear. This presentation is based on the preliminary findings from an ARC Linkage project (2016-2019; Partner Organisation: Diversicare/ECCQ), which aims to understand how older people from diverse backgrounds adjust socially and culturally to living in Australia and answer some key questions about the factors that contribute to a sense of social isolation and low psychological well-being.
