Older South Australians have the right to be safe and to be treated with dignity and respect. Decisions about their lives, finances, where they live, health care, lifestyle and relationships are important and older people have the right to make these decisions as they wish.

The South Australian Charter of the Rights and Freedoms of Older People helps you to understand what these rights are.
