Accommodation policies for elderly people involve activity by all three levels of government, non-government welfare organisations (of which about 700 in South Australia are involved with the welfare of elderly people), private entrepreneurs, developers, and professionals. Some are more attuned than others to the needs of non-English speaking older people though it is important to note that for both English speaking and non-English speaking elderly people many of the accommodation and support issues are similar. Of course there are some differences and it is our task to identify, target and work on those differences.
