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 LGBTI people have access to high quality culturally appropriate aged care, and this can be found at Uniting AgeWell (UA). Many UA staff have undertaken LGBTI inclusive practice training and LGBTI 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.

Our services include…
