Elder Abuse: Human Rights in Private Care Homes

Back to all Motions

2007 Retired Members' Conference
13 June 2007
Carried as Amended

In view of the fact that the rights of elderly people in private rest homes are not covered by the Human Rights Act, Conference urges the National Retired Members’ Committee to take note of recent well documented cases of abuse of elderly people in these institutions and to campaign for the section of the Human Rights Act to be amended to include this vulnerable group of people.
