In Australia, as is true overseas, parents and carers of people with severe disabilities such as cognitive impairments—whether caused by developmental disability, acquired brain injury, chronic mental illness, or conditions such as dementia—frequently want to make plans for a future situation when they are no longer able to care. In an ageing population, demand for such services is rising. Meeting such needs touches on fundamental human rights.
