“Yuedumu people are taking care of their old people so they can stay at home, on country. By providing meals on wheels, personal care, laundry assistance, social support and health support as well as short term residential respite care. This video is part of a series made in communities identified under the council of Australian Governments’ National Partnership Agreement on Remote Service Delivery.” (www.fahcsia.gov.au (Links to an external site.))
After watching the video (and reading the chapter in your textbook), please discuss the social dimension of health, as it relates to social support for aging populations. Share your thoughts on the potential differences between indigenous and non-indigenous aging populations’ social support structure.
