Abstract

This submission focuses on the guardianship regime in New South Wales and is concerned with the implications of that regime for the ageing population, specifically those living with dementia. We do so with reference to the norms outlined in the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and the decision-making principles enunciated in the ALRC Report on Equality, Capacity and Disability in Commonwealth Laws (ALRC Report). The submission draws on comparative analysis of legislation and case law, and recommends a number of changes to the existing legislation. These are focused on procedures and safeguards for supported and/or substitute decision-making models
