Over the past year, Seniors Rights Service has been working in collaboration with Legal Aid Piano to deliver engaging education on legal issues.
They have been doing so by facilitating group discussions following screenings of the confronting video, Piano Forte. This story explores financial elder abuse in a family, and the ramifications which can flow from this.
The video is followed by a panel to for the audience to ask questions about any legal or other issues. The panel is generally comprised of solicitors, police representatives and community providers who deal with social isolation. The purpose of this panel is to provide clarity for audience members who have queries around their own situation. This is especially important as Piano Forte can be useful for people in identifying issues in their lives which they may not have been aware of prior to watching the video.
The sessions are consistently well attended and feedback is always extremely positive.
Seniors Rights Service Education Manager Diana Bernard and solicitor Melissa Chaperlin recently facilitated Piano Forte Sessions in Rockdale, Manly and Chatswood with more booked in the coming months.
