Legal & Mediation

  1. Advocacy

    Most of the time aged care services work well and the people who use them are happy with the service they receive. However, sometimes there is a problem, and you may need help to speak up and have the problem resolved.

  2. What is elder abuse?

    Elder abuse has become an important topic in Australia, however, the prevalence is still unknown and difficult to gauge due to the secret nature of this abuse.

  3. The signs of elder abuse

    While some forms of elder abuse can be very obvious, in most cases, the abuse takes place behind close doors and can be hard to spot, especially when a close family member or friend is the perpetrator.

  4. Do I really need a Will and last testament?

    A lot of people have spent decades of their life collecting assets, treasures, memories, and slowly growing their wealth, it is only right that you have a say in what happens to your assets after you pass away.

  5. Being wary of scams and sharing your personal information

    During this digital age, it’s hard to keep your information and money safe as an older person when new technology and how it works can be quite confusing. This is doubled by the fact more and more scammers are utilising the current COVID-19 crisis to target people through phone calls and email phishing scams.

  6. Accreditation

    All funded homes must meet required accreditation standards and demonstrate continuous improvement with regard to the quality of care and services provided to residents.

  7. What should you specify in your Advance Care Directive?

    An Advance Care Directive (ACD) is an important document that can direct your family, friends and medical professionals in how you wish to receive care when you are dying or not cognitive to give directions. While there is no specific legislation around ACD's, they are legally binding and it gives you the opportunity to make your future healthcare preferences known if you lose decision making capacity due to injury or illness.

  8. What about complaints?

    The number of people currently receiving aged care services, either in the community or in a residential facility, is vastly increasing and every day more people are entering new services.
