Product description

Review

In a collection of thematic essays, Elder Law: A Guide to Working with Older Australians addresses topics commonly encountered in administration of “Elder Law”, drawing upon the expertise of contributors from diverse backgrounds, not legal alone. Engagement with professionals across different social disciplines is a common feature of “Elder Law” in practice. Lawyers have no monopoly of interest in the due operation of “Elder Law”. … Elder Law: A Guide to Working with Older Australians is a valuable contribution to a conversation about Australian law and practice dealing with vulnerable people. It is particularly helpful in identifying problems and setting them in their legislative and administrative context across Australia’s geographical boundaries. - The Hon Justice Geoff Lindsay, Australian Law Journal, 2019, 93

Those of us who think that our experience in preparing wills and powers of attorney and advising on retirement village and residential aged care facilities contracts have got this area of law pretty well covered may have some reading to do. The editors have assembled 21 authors, including themselves, to address a broad range of practical topics covering not just the expected items mentioned above but also advance care directives, supported decision making, the NDIS, the Commonwealth Home Support Programme, government pensions and benefits, reverse mortgages, financial abuse and age discrimination. … Focused on practical issues relevant to this area, the book is set out in concise and well-formatted chapters. It will serve both as a useful adjunct to practitioners and a wake up call to the issues we need to be aware of in this developing area. - Peter Flanagan, InPrint, Law Institute Journal Victoria, April 2019
