Quality Care with European Flair
Pennwood Village is run by the Serbian Community Welfare Association of SA Inc. It is a 60 bed low care facility that caters for culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) clients mainly from the Slavic ethnic groups as well as Australian residents.
We respond proactively to the management of diversity in culture, language, communication, behaviour and beliefs of residents, families, staff and volunteers by collaborating with other mainstream organisations.
Pennwood Village assists CALD clients to obtain services by ensuring others:
Understand the issues affecting older people from CALD backgrounds
Ensure multilingual staff acquire the knowledge, understanding, skills and competencies to deliver culturally inclusive services
Develop and/or provide resources on culturally appropriate aged care.
The Resthaven Alliance will deliver a Community Care Partners Program in 2009. 'Connecting the Community: Supporting Older Serbian People to Access Aged Care Services' is a program that aims to identify and address specific barriers for CALD clients finding services by identifying key people in their communities to be “connectors” to support and mentor elderly people to find vital services.
The Aged Care and Housing (ACH) Swan Cottage Project introduces respite day care to CALD clients.
Please contact us to find out more information.
