Aged Care and Disability Services
The Georgina Davidson Margaret Thompson Hostel (GMDTHD) is a unique service which enables the transition for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander elderly/disable and or in need of accommodation to reside in a culturally supportive place.
Georgina, as it is supportively known, offers a range of culturally significant services to residents from Traditional Owners to those that have historical connections to this area.
Key Strategies for Georgina Margaret Davidson Thompson Hostel include:
- Providing a coordinated and flexible model of care that enables opportunities for aging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to maintain social and cultural connections to age on country.
- Acknowledging Elders and senior community members as key stakeholders and role models to champion culturally appropriate choices and approaches to health and wellbeing.
- Building the capacity of the health and aged care workforce to be sensitive to the needs of aging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
We at GMDTHD aim to provide a service and support in the form of respite and palliative care for families and carers who have responsibilities for older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with health barriers and/or disabilities.
