Hall & Prior Health & Aged Care Group embraces diversity in our provision of inclusive aged care and welcomes all people regardless of lifestyle choices, ethnicity, faith, sexual orientation or gender identity.
With the support of Perth-based group GLBTI Rights in Australia (GRAI) Hall & Prior have developed an LGBTI-inclusive education program to support staff and volunteers in providing a service that is individual, diverse and inclusive to all care recipients. We are committed to the pursuit of excellence in the provision of care and accommodation to the aged in our community.
As an organisation, Hall & Prior is responding to the need for appropriate care for LGBTI elders by creating an LGBTI policy. We have formed a committee to ensure the comprehensive rollout of training and inclusive language through all forms and documentation.
Our dedicated LGBTI committee received in-house training from GRAI, who work to raise awareness and improve the quality of life for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) elders, as part of the Federal Government-funded National LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care Training Project.
The journey at Tuohy Aged Care Home has been shared with all our homes across the organisation, enabling us to support care recipients who face a similar journey. GRAI now shares our story to assist other aged care providers in their education and support programs for gender and sexuality in aged care homes.
