Elder Law in New Zealand is written by contributors from a variety of backgrounds, ranging from legal and medical practitioners to elder law advocates and scholars, all of whom have applied their expertise to many of the legal issues encountered by New Zealand’s ageing population.

Elder law is comprised of a range of distinct but often interconnected areas of law. Each part of the book explores different facets of elder law including:

  • New Zealand’s “ageing in place” policy and the economic and legal implications of health trends; human rights, including the right to health care;
  • entitlements to services from district health boards;
  • retirement villages and rest homes, including dispute resolution and rights;
  • relationship property issues;
  • the legal remedies available for elder abuse victims;
  • the legal issues surrounding wills and dying intestate
  • the rights of older people with intellectual disabilities; and
  • the legal complexities faced by grandparents caring for their grandchildren.
