Knowing your rights: a guide to the rights of older South Australians

Elder abuse Civil rights Crime prevention Older people Law South Australia

This guide aims to help older people of any age increase their understanding of their rights, especially at different times in their lives, and to recognise the laws that provide safeguards and protection.

Being informed about your rights and certain laws can support you or someone you know to live an active and independent life by staying connected, informed and in control. This resource includes services and websites where information, advice and support can be accessed depending on the concerns or circumstances. Unpaid and paid carers, volunteers, neighbours, relatives, friends, or community services staff can use this resource to inform and support an older person who may not be aware of their rights or who may be unable to access information.
