In Australia we have about 9 diverse needs groups included in our Aged Care Act. I think the tool here does not consider that many older people and people per se belong to diverse groups e.g. LGBTIQA+, Care Leavers, Veterans, Culturally and Linguistically Diverse, Indigenous and Stolen Generations. I think Social and Cultural Profiles needs to consider much more than language spoken, religious and spiritual beliefs.

The attached Diversity identification Questionnaire is the one we use within our aged care facility. It was designed by an Advisory Group (Trauma) and Flinders University Clinical Psychologist (Trauma and Dementia).

This covers very useful information expressed simply. It will be a very useful tool for day-care managers and recreation staff in all aged care facilities.
