Who are ‘Elders’?

    Elders are generally defined as elderly people aged 65 and over.


    What is ‘Elder Abuse’?

    Some Elders of course have no physical or mental impairment and are entirely independent. Others have physical and/or cognitive impairments which can result in impaired decision making capacity and dependence on others. Further, it can make them more susceptible to breaches of trust. Types of abuse can include:

    • Financial abuse;
    • Psychological abuse;
    • Physical abuse or neglect;
    • Sexual abuse; and
    • Chemical abuse (including inappropriate use, underuse or overuse, of prescribed medication).

    What is our ‘Elder Law Night’?

    The Subiaco Justice Centre’s Elder Law Night is aimed at Elders seeking legal advice in relation to:

    • Elder Abuse;
    • Wills & Estates; and
    • Property matters.
