What is Elder Law?
With the growth in Australia’s ageing population has come a growing need for legal services and expertise that is specifically tailored to provide assistance and help to that ageing population and their families at this important time in their lives.
Areas of particular importance include estate planning, preparing a will and the appointment of alternate decision makers in the event of incapacity; superannuation disputes, contractual advice relating to accommodation, including retirement or nursing homes and advice relating to disputes, abuse or discrimination and personal incidents.
