FREE 2019 DIARY INFORMS BARWON SENIORS

Monday, 3 December 2018

Seniors in Barwon can claim a free diary that alerts them of scams, elder abuse, funerals, pensions and more - but they’ll have to be quick.

Member for Barwon, Kevin Humphries, says demand is always high for the Legal Topics for Older People diary that will be distributed from December 3.

The diary contains a forward by Premier Gladys Berejiklian and provides information about seniors’ rights, consumer law, aged care, community phone numbers and a list of agencies and services for older people.

“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,” Kevin Humphries said.

You’ll find tips to help you get the most from life, with information about Seniors Cards and allowances for which you may be eligible.

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.

The diary will also keep you up to date with events like the NSW Seniors Festival, NSW Grandparents Day and 2019 school holiday periods.
