Is there such a thing as too much protection? According to many aged care and disability rights advocates, yes. While those working to support others have a duty of care towards their clients, this needs to be balanced with the right of individuals to make decisions about their own life that could expose them to potential harm. It’s called dignity of risk, and it’s an essential human right.
