Ethnic Link Services
Language support

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

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 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.

This is a statewide service for people aged 65 and over and their carers. We have offices in metropolitan Adelaide, the Riverland and Whyalla.

“I am so grateful I was able to move into a pet-friendly room at Regency Green Multicultural Aged Care. Whether I am going to a film or knitting or craft, my dog Bruce is always able to come. It really is wonderful.”
