If you identify as LGBTI,
you are welcome at Homestyle.
At Homestyle Aged Care Melbourne we support diversity in all its forms and welcome everyone
regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, ethnicity and life experiences. Over the course of their lives, many LGBTI elders have experienced exclusion, harassment, prejudice and trauma on account of their sexual orientation and gender identity. This can make entering the aged care system particularly frightening for someone who already feels vulnerable.
We understand that those who identify as LGBTI have unique needs for aged care and we are committed to providing an inclusive, respectful environment for all our LGBTI elders, their partners, caregivers and families. The Aged Care Act and Australian Government recognises the need to ensure that elders living in aged care homes do not face discrimination or marginalisation and that they are treated with respect and dignity at all times. Homestyle Aged Care warmly welcomes LGBTI elders and we are happy to provide you with more information about how we facilitate inclusion and equality among staff and residents within our homes.
