A new community awareness campaign to understand advance life planning will help protect Queenslanders and their loved ones from the risk of elder abuse in later stages of life, Attorney-General Shannon Fentiman said.

“Planning for later stages of life or even after our passing can be confrontational for Queenslanders to talk about,” said Minister Fentiman.

“But we know that advance life planning plays an important role in protecting the financial futures of all Queenslanders.

“Fundamental to informed decision-making is Queenslanders starting conversations with their families, and professionals to explore options that reflect their needs, wishes and circumstances,” Minister Fentiman said.
