How cultural background affects dementia care.
In high-income countries like Australia, nursing and aged care workforces are increasingly multicultural. In Australia it is estimated that 32 per cent of RACF workers were born overseas. In similar nations, such as the UK, figures are as high as 40 per cent.
These workers have been essential to the aged care workforce, filling significant staff shortages and reflecting the multicultural make-up of aged care residents.
