Attitudes of older people
Older people are not a homogenous group. As a group, they comprise diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, levels of education, family arrangements, socio-economic status and so on. Nevertheless, some common themes were evident from our consultations and submissions received. Older people’s attitudes to themselves, the legal system, access to legal information and the provision of legal assistance will, of course, impact upon the way that services need to be tailored for older people.
