2017-06-01 - Home and Community Care Talk at Fitzroy Chinese Association


On 01 June 2017, Chinese Nurse Association Australia connected once again with Fitzroy Chinese Association to bring awareness on Home Care Packages to their members. Through the assistance of a Cantonese translator, Chinese Nurse Association successfully introduced “What is Home Care” to the attendants; we discussed ways to assist them with living at home and to make ageing a more enjoyable and smoother process.


After the meeting, there were many attendants that were interested in obtaining our assessment forms. They asked us for assistance to organise an ACAT assessment for them to obtain suitable Home Care Packages that can assist them with living longer within their own homes. Many of the attendants spoke only in Cantonese so the representatives of Chinese Nurse Association Australia had a barrier when communicating with them on the day. However, many people signed up to show interest and our Cantonese assessment team will be in contact.


This situation made us realise that we need more Cantonese speaking volunteers and would gladly accept you to our team if you share the same interest in improving the quality of the senior community’s lives. If you are interested in volunteering with us, please email your resume to info@cnaai.org.au.



睽違了將近兩年,在這週四6月1日,我們澳洲華人護理協會終於再次與菲士萊華人協會建立聯繫,將與年長者相關的福利資訊帶給他們的會員知道。在講課的過程中,通過菲士萊華人協會安排的翻譯協助,我們順利地介紹甚麼是‘綜合居家護理服務’,以及如何通過該項服務讓他們的居家生活更美滿舒適,也讓他們了解遞交該項服務的申請是如此的重要及急迫



在會後,就有許多阿姨們上前想要索取我們內部的健康評估表,請我們盡快幫他們取得聯邦政府的綜合居家護理服務,但是,由於在場有許多只會講廣東話的阿姨叔叔們,讓我們只會講普通話或是其他方言的工作人員們,無法清楚地了解他們的健康,經濟及居家生活情況,這也讓我們無法及時地幫他們向聯邦政府申請評估。


因為這次的經驗,讓我們了解擁有一位會講廣東話的工作人員是多麼的必要及緊急,所以我們希望有興趣成為志工的朋友們,如果你們會講廣東話,並希望與我們一起提高老年人的居家生活品質,請盡快聯繫我們,並將履歷寄到我們的信箱中 info@cnaai.org.au,謝謝。
