The Older Persons Act 13 of 2006 (the Act), regulations, forms and national norms and standards (NN&S) commenced on 1 April 2010 replacing the Aged Persons Act 81 of 1967 as amended. The aim of the Act is laudable, since it recognises the plight of the elderly and that they should be empowered and protected and that their status, well-being, safety, health and general well-being should be looked after. An older person is, in the case of a male, when he is older than 65 years of age and, in the case of a female, when she is older than 60 years of age.
