Italy has recently passed its “Dopo Di Noi” (“After Us”) legislation, the aim of which is to secure the future of adults with intellectual or other disabilities after their parents or other carers pass on. The bill addresses an anxiety shared and frequently highlighted by parents who care for adult children in Ireland. The bill seeks to safeguard the financial future of adults whose carers have died and to ensure that they have appropriate advocacy. The bill is recent, and the full legislation extremely detailed, but it has been described by former Eurocarers Board Member Licia Boccaletti of Anziani e non Solo as ‘a very important legislative step’. Family Carers Ireland has been liaising with Italian colleagues through the Eurocarers Research Working Group as to the bill’s content and aims, and is preparing a translation of a useful information sheet about its provisions.
