  • social isolation because of language, dependency on family or cultural issues;
  • having one carer who suffers ‘carer fatigue’;
  • having diminished capacity and, therefore, being unable to advocate;
  • being part of a dysfunctional family; and
  • having a limited understanding of financial matters.
