The Australian Law Reform Commission’s report Elder Abuse – A National Response (ALRC 131), released in June 2017, contains a range of recommendations to combat elder abuse and protect adults at risk. To address the issue of older people experiencing emotional, financial, and physical abuse including family violence, the ALRC has made a series of recommendations of which lawyers should be aware. This seminar highlights changes to the Aged Care Act 1997 including safeguards against the misuse of enduring documents, protection of superannuation, review of guardianship and financial administration, and a move towards actively developing national best practice guidelines for the execution of wills.
