New language guide aimed at ending ageism in aged care

EveryWORD Counts is a language guide to address ageism in aged care settings and the broader community. It was written and produced by The Benevolent Society in conjunction with Brisbane North PHN.

The guide contains simple tools and practical advice for all people who work in aged care, from nurses to managers and administrative staff. The language guide follows the Aged Care Royal Commission’s recommendation for a new human rights-based Aged Care Act, that puts older people at the centre of the discussion.
