Piano Forte Program – Elder Abuse

Macquarie Regional Library is hosting a free community education program that deals with the issue of elder financial abuse, at Dubbo and Wellington libraries on the 13th and 14th of May 2019.

The program consists of a film screening of the play Piano Forte, followed by a discussion with a panel of lawyers and seniors rights experts from Legal Aid NSW and Seniors Rights Service. Audience members will have a chance to ask the panel members questions.

The film Piano Forte uses a fictional story to highlight the subtle way elder abuse can occur, and highlights the role and responsibilities of an Enduring Power of Attorney. The film also explores the importance of taking out a will, and the role of an Executor in administering a will.

Manager of Macquarie Regional Library Kathryn McAlister said the program is important for older people and their families.

“The Piano Forte program explores legal issues that older people and their families experience when planning for the future, we encourage the local community, health and aged care service workers to come along,” said Ms McAlister

The program is a partnership between the State Library of NSW, Legal Aid NSW and Seniors Rights Service.
