Diversity

Doutta Galla Aged Services was founded to cater for Victoria’s diverse communities. We pride ourselves on cultural diversity and inclusion.
We know that culture, faith, food and language matter. They’re a part of you, and always will be.

We also know that cultural diversity means much more.

Nationality, gender, socioeconomic status, sexual preference, age, and mental and physical health matter too. Your life experience, and your way of thinking, is also important.

Wherever you were born, and however you choose to live, Doutta Galla welcomes you.

Language

43% of our residents speak other languages: Chinese, Croatian, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Spanish, Turkish and Vietnamese and more. Over half of our employees speak languages as well as English.

In our larger residences, you’ll find library books, information sheets, and activities calendars in languages other than English. Where there are large language groups, you’ll find social activities and outings for speakers.

Qualified interpreters can be arranged for family meetings, care conferences and other meetings in all residences.

Faith and Spirit

Doutta Galla is non-denominational; we welcome all faiths. Every residence has a non-denominational spiritual retreat, open to residents, families and their spiritual advisors.

Food

All meals are prepared on-site by qualified chefs, and food preferences are happily accommodated.

Lifestyle

Cultural celebrations, national days, festivals and feasts are an important part of our Lifestyle calendar. Cultural community groups, language groups and entertainers regularly visit our facilities to perform and socialise. Our lifestyle program is driven by resident choice and supported by qualified staff.
