World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

By Katie Miller

Human Rights Justice 

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is held on 15 June each year. It’s a good opportunity for lawyers to reflect on the challenges we face in acting for older clients and those who care for them. Bill O’Shea, a former president of the LIV, a current member of the Elder Law Section and General Counsel for Alfred Health, shares his insights on the financial abuse of elderly people. Elder abuse – What every solicitor needs to know I became aware of the risk and extent of elder abuse in my role as General Counsel for Alfred Health. My responsibilities include providing legal services to Caulfield Hospital, a major centre for older patients in Melbourne.
