Elder Abuse

28/05/2021 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Presenter: Andrew Meiliunas, Senior Associate and State Litigation Lawyer, Maurice Blackburn Lawyers

Older Australians are more at risk of being taken advantage of financially. What most people don’t realise is that this is a form of elder abuse. Recent estimates suggest that up to 14% of older Australians may be victim to elder abuse at some point in their lives.

This presentation will cover:

  • How to recognise elder abuse.
  • The key risk factors for an elderly person to be a victim of abuse.
  • How we can help to prevent elder abuse.
  • Where to go when things go wrong.

Andrew Meiliunas has over a decade of experience and has acted for hundreds of clients involved in elder abuse matters, giving him an in-depth inside knowledge of the elder abuse that occurs in our communities.
