Reparations for people living with dementia in aged care
People living with dementia have been subject to significant harm, including violence, abuse, and neglect in aged care.

This harm is a systemic and structural problem. People living with dementia, as well as care partners and family members, encounter ineffective complaint and prosecutorial processes, including barriers to reporting harm to the police and difficulty accessing justice through the courts.

These harms and the failure to redress them violate the human rights of people living with dementia.

A new report, ‘Reparations for Harm to People Living with Dementia in Residential Aged Care’ found that people living with dementia and their families and care partners want reparations in order to achieve recognition of harm, accountability of those responsible for the harm and change to prevent the harm happening again.

Join Associate Professor Linda Steele, Kate Swaffer, Yumi Lee, Bill Mitchell OAM LLD, Theresa Flavin, and The Hon. Prof. Verity Firth AM as they discuss the report findings, and recommend how we can support people living with dementia obtain reparations and ultimately work towards justice and repair.
