Ethnic Link Services
Language support

Supporting culturally diverse communities.

Ethnic Link Services is here to help older people from non-English speaking backgrounds to remain living independently at home and in the community.

We help communicate in the language of choice and ensure that all cultural traditions and beliefs are considered.

Our bilingual and bicultural staff are trained in aged care service delivery to support older people and carers

What can we do?

We provide interpreting services, liaise between providers, help with correspondence, get people involved in activities and run language-specific programs.

Most importantly, we provide home visits and social support for vulnerable or isolated people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
