How to Choose a Chinese Residential Aged Care in NSW

My generation above is getting to the age of needing residential aged care support. Sadly, across the world, the size of the next generation is decreasing, hence it is logistically impossible to take care of parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles as a family (let alone by yourself). This is why it is so important to seek, visit and sign up to Chinese Australian aged cares as soon as possible, to allow you sufficient time to make important decisions for your loved ones.

For the Chinese-Australian community in Sydney, it’s important to find a suitable aged care home that understands and respects each resident as an individual. You will find that everyone has different health care needs as they grow older. Spanning from nutrition through to recreational needs.

This guide will help you choose the best Chinese-Australian aged care home for your loved one in a simple and straightforward way.

Respect for Culture

It’s crucial to pick an aged care home that values Chinese culture. This means they should know about Chinese traditions and customs and show respect for them. It does not necessarily mean that the staff need to be Chinese, rather it is more important that the staff can relate to residents in a meaningful and understand way.

Language Support

This may be the most crucial aspect of choosing Chinese Australian aged care. Communication is really important for you and family. It’s vital that your loved one can communicate their health care needs, but also social with others who speak the same language. Look for a place where the staff AND other residents can speak the Chinese dialect that will support your family’s needs. This way, your loved one can talk about what they need and socialise comfortably.

Good Food

Food is a big part of life, and Chinese meals might be important for your family member. Choose a place that offers real Chinese food to make them feel at home. Also review the aged care’s nutritional plan. As you get older it is vital to maintain body weight (unlike the younger years when it is easier to put on weight). Your family member needs diet that can be served by the aged care, and not a generic Chinese meal.

Activities and Friends

Don’t underestimate the importance of recreational activities. Being social and doing things you like can make you happy. Pick a place that has activities that your loved one would enjoy, like Tai Chi or traditional games. This will help them make friends and stay active.

Close and Easy to Get To

Everyone likes having visitors, hence try to visit your loved one as often as you can. Choose an aged care home that’s not too far away so you can visit often. Whilst not all elderly are able to venture outside, but if you are able to take your loved one out for a trip, it’s great if there are Chinese shops nearby.

Family Can Be Involved

It’s nice if the aged care home lets you be a part of planning for your loved one’s care. Some aged cares will allow you to be with your loved one throughout the entire day. If so, this is great for staying with your loved one and ensuring that they get the care that they need.

Check it out

Don’t just read reviews, comments, and write ups about Chinese aged cares. Visit them, ask the staff questions and think about what would make your loved one, and family happy. Don’t be afraid to ask about Chinese customs and things that are important to your family.

Indo Chinese Aged Care

Indo Chinese Aged Care

The Indo Chinese Aged Care was established in the early 1980’s when several Indo Chinese from Vietnam, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, contributed donations for the creation of this aged care facilities. As part of the governments committment to fostering a multicultural society, a grant was given to support the aged care.

Being one the pioneers of aged care for Chinese Australians in Western Sydney, the aged care has expanded from 40 beds to 88 beds. The demand for joining Indo Chinese Aged Care is quite long. Hence, I strongly recommend you put your loved one on the waiting list (even if you are unsure). If a room becomes available they will contact you to see if you are still interested in becoming a resident.

Layout and Atmosphere: The ambiance at Indo Chinese Aged Care is a testament to their commitment to cultural harmony. Within the facility there are places for various religions – Christian, Budhism and several others. The main dining hall is vibrant, open and clean.

Dietary needs: Indo Chinese Aged Care support individual diet plans for each resident. Often other age care facilities will provide a generic Chinese meal, and while this may be sufficient depending on the residents, Indo Chinese Age Care extends beyond to ensure your loved one receives the nutrition that is needed to stay healthy.

Engaging Activities: There is a dedicated recreational activity planner at Indo Chinese Aged Care. Some may believe that this isn’t warranted, however the mental health of residents is extremely important through ensuring their minds are kept active and happy. Depression, loneliness is all too common at aged cares, hence Indo Chinese Aged Care has dedicated resources for recreational activities.
