Abstract

There has been a flurry of law reform activity around elder rights in the last few years. In 2017 the Australian Law Reform Commission’s Report “Elder Abuse – a National Legal Response” made far reaching recommendations. Earlier this year the Commonwealth Government published the results of its Inquiry into the Quality of Residential Aged Care in Australia, and has recently announced a Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.
