If you have been surprised by the legalities and intricacies of caring for someone who is frail or aging, this new resource, developed by COTA Western Australia, is a great place to start.
COTA Western Australia says that, “This Guide will help you to untangle the intricacies of many issues which have already, or may confront you, as you continue your life’s journey.
It could have something to do with renting a house or apartment; your rights in dealing with a dispute in a retirement village; making sure a Will is valid or not open to interpretation or making sure that your end-of-life-wishes are readily available should you become incapable of communicating them if required.”
Areas covered in the guide are:
- Housing and Accommodation
- Loans from an Institution
- Family Violence
- Guardianship and Administration Act 1990
- Public Trustee
- Public Advocate
- Organ Donation
- Advance Care Planning
- Voluntary Assisted Dying
- Legal Resources
