This jointly sponsored seminar discussed the legal and professional frameworks for decision making with regard to older people. The right of older people to make their own decisions is rarely discussed, but in fact is very important to them. The complexities of the issues involved including how, where and with whom to live, to be treated or not, the different attitude to risk taking, control over finances, choice after death and so on, were confirmed by the case studies cited. Common practice, the impacts on carers, and supported decision making were covered.

Confusion reigns

Author:
HARDING Tessa
Journal article citation:
Community Care, 8.5.97, 1997, p.21.
Publisher:
Reed Business Information

The law relating to the provision of social services for elderly and disabled people is inadequate. A ruling which means that local authorities will be able to refuse to provide residential care to older people solely because they have a little money in the bank has shocked older people and thrown government policy into disarray. Calls for an immediate change to the law so that older people continue to receive the financial support they have been promised.
