The Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing, located in Victoria, Australia, is an online source of information on culturally appropriate aged care.

The Centre was developed to guide and promote best practice standards of care that address cultural diversity across all levels of service design and delivery.

They have developed a glossary of over 1000 terms used in ageing and translated them into 13 community languages. Even though some of the terms are tailored to the Australian ageing service system, I would think that the Glossary of Aged Care Terminology would be very useful for organizations needing to promote consistency of translations of aged care information.
