Elder Abuse - Your family and your home

Legal Aid NSW

In this webinar we speak with a senior solicitor and social worker from the Legal Aid NSW Elder Abuse Service about elder abuse that can occur in the family and home.

To fit with the Seniors Festival 2021 theme, 'In our Nature', we will explore emerging legal themes and challenges, particularly when an older person is sharing their home with an adult child and how community and support workers can help.
