Inheritance: not an entitlement

The Respecting Seniors Network has launched its latest campaign Inheritance – not an entitlement.

The campaign seeks to dispel common myths stemming from a sense of entitlement to our elder’s assets or our future inheritance.

The Inheritance: not an entitlement campaign has produced seven short film clips which “bust” common myths about elder abuse. This includes myths that “elder abuse is only physical” or that it “mainly occurs in nursing homes”, when in fact the most common forms of abuse are financial and emotional exploitation perpetrated at home by trusted family members.

The campaign has received the support of Dr Kay Patterson AO, Australian Human Rights Commission, Age Discrimination Commissioner, who introduces the campaign in a short video recording.

The seven short films comprising the Inheritance – not an entitlement campaign can be viewed on our YouTube channel.
