FREE, EASY-TO-READ SENIORS’ DIARIES FULL OF HELPFUL INFORMATION
Information about seniors’ rights, consumer law, aged care, community phone numbers and a list of agencies and services for older people are published in the 2019 Seniors’ Diary.
Member for Tamworth, Kevin Anderson said Legal Aid NSW produced the informative and easy-to-read diary each year to help demystify legal issues that are of special interest to older people.
“Seniors in electorate can claim a free diary that alerts them of scams, elder abuse, funerals, pensions and more - but they’ll have to be quick.
“Demand is always high for the Legal Topics for Older People diary.
“Legal Aid NSW produces this informative and easy-to-read diary each year to help demystify legal issues that are of special interest to older people.
“Since demand is always high, the print run has almost doubled this year to 80,000, but we are still expecting copies to go fast.
“This handy diary brings together important phone numbers and information about everything from helping your family financially, to updating a will, and understanding your rights when moving into a retirement village.
“It also explains things like enduring power of attorney, advanced care directives and planning for children with a disability – important topics that can be tough to talk about.
“We also have copies of the Seniors Card directory covering the north-east corner of the state,” Mr Anderson concluded.
The diary also features a dedicated chapter on legal issues that are important for older Aboriginal people to know about, including planning for funerals and sorry business, and using a will as a way of passing on cultural knowledge.
