The Indigenous Aged Care Design Guide

Design, specification, quality control and maintenance are key components to the successful application of Housing for Health – the guide. Borrowing from the same principles is The Indigenous Aged Care Design Guide, now available online or in hard copy.  

The Indigenous Aged Care Design Guide is a resource to assist in the design, construction, ongoing assessment and maintenance of aged care facilities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This Guide provides practical information on the design, selection, installation, construction, renovation and maintenance of all aspects related to aged care facilities. 

It is a resource for everybody involved in providing aged care services to Indigenous people, including community councils, Indigenous workers, architects, project managers, trades people and government officials.

This guide makes up part of a larger resource prepared by Dementia Training Australia to assist in good environmental planning for ageing populations as well as those living with dementia.
