Health & Wellbeing
At Uniting AgeWell we believe older people, like people of all ages, want to live in an environment of choice, empowerment and wellness – and to access support and care as they choose.
It’s important that LGBTIQ+ people have access to high quality culturally appropriate aged care, and this can be found at Uniting AgeWell (UA). Many UA staff have undertaken LGBTIQ+ inclusive practice training and LGBTIQ+ policy exists and processes are being updated. Our consumer consultation process ensures preferences are acknowledged and people’s decision to disclose information is respected.
UA is the proud winner of a 2016 Dorothies Award and is currently working toward achieving a Rainbow Tick. In 2018, we were proud to be a Major Sponsor for the annual IDAHOBIT Breakfast community event. UA also hosted two pride afternoon teas at Strathhaven and Strathglen in 2021.
