The action plan will assist the community to gain a clear understanding of the rights of older people, what elder abuse is and how it can be prevented.

The action plan is guided by three themes:

Older South Australians live safely with their individual rights respected and upheld Older South Australians have access to information, support and/or services which increase their resilience and wellbeing Our community’s strength and diversity is responded to in a positive way.
The action plan was developed by Office for the Ageing, SA Health in active collaboration with other state departments, non-government organisations, South Australian universities, relevant peak bodies and the Australian Government. The projects outlined in the action plan will be delivered by Office for the Ageing in collaboration with these key partners.

The strategy and action plan are supported by Prosperity Through Longevity: South Australia’s Ageing Plan 2014-2019, Our Action Plan and responds to the plan’s priority one, ‘Health, wellbeing and security.’
