Abstract

In Australia, as is true overseas, parents and carers of people with severe disabilities such as cognitive impairments-whether caused by developmental disability, acquired brain injury, chronic mental illness, or conditions such as dementia-frequently want to make plans for a future situation when they are no longer able to care. In an ageing population, demand for such services is rising. Meeting such needs touches on fundamental human rights.
