PICAC in the NT

In the Northern Territory the Partners in Culturally Appropriate Aged Care (PICAC) program is managed by COTA NT (also known as Council on the Ageing – Northern Territory).

A dedicated staff member works on the program and its aims to:

  • Ensure the special needs of older people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are identified and addressed
  • Improve the partnerships between aged care providers, culturally and linguistically diverse communities and the Commonwealth Department of Health & Ageing.

How this is achieved

Our Program Manager delivers the PICAC program through a wide program of activities based on networking – making connections within the NT community through events and meetings; and representation – giving CaLD seniors a voice at advisory groups and forums, service delivery and training.
