We recognise that older people have their own special legal needs

We also recognise that, unfortunately, our older people are also often some of society’s most vulnerable and exploited.

If you or someone you care for is looking to move into a retirement village or aged care facility, we can help you understand your rights and obligations so that you know exactly what you’re signing and what you’re entitled to.

We can also help make sure you stay in control of both your assets and your decision making by giving you advice on and drafting range of legal instruments such as powers of attorney, powers of enduring guardian and advanced care directives.

We’re also one of Australia’s premier law firms when it comes to aged care litigation. So we can also help you get the answers you need when someone close to you hasn’t been afforded the dignity they deserve while in aged care.

Our Approach

Catherine Henry Lawyers provides robust representation and holds aged care providers to account.
