Informed by the perspectives and experiences of people living with dementia, and their family members, care partners, advocates and lawyers, this project will explore the need to 'redress' (i.e., right the wrongs') of neglect and abuse of people living with dementia in Australian residential aged care facilities and older people’s mental health facilities. The project will consider why and how we right the wrongs, and how this redress might be supported by the legal profession in order to contribute to justice, healing and closure for the dementia community.
