Dignity, Respect, Choice: Planning for the Final Chapter

“Our societal reluctance to discuss death and dying impacts us all. It inhibits future planning of care and medical intervention; it impacts the emotional and psychological response of both the dying person and those more broadly affected, and it prevents the dying person from expressing their final wishes.”


Speakers

Paul Falzon - Paul is a solicitor in a small family-based legal firm who is particularly interested in using legal processes to protect the dignity of older people and prevent elder abuse. He has worked in the area of Wills and estates and family law since 2013, including working for COTA NSW's low-cost Legal Pathways service, and enjoys helping older people plan for their future. He has also seen the problems that can ensue when people don't address last-stage-of-life issues in time.
