The Department of Social Development invites you to comment on Older Persons Amendment Draft Bill 2017.

The Bill seeks to amend the Older Persons Act, 2006, so as to:
▪ insert new definitions;
▪ insert new provisions relating to the monitoring and evaluation of all services to older persons and for the removal of older persons to a temporary safe care without a court order;
▪ tighten up the existing implementation and compliance measures;
▪ effect some textual amendments for greater clarity and to provide for matters connected to it.
