Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today encouraged local seniors to grab their free copy of the 2016 Legal Aid NSW Legal Topics for Older People Diary, which is now available.
“The publication, now in its fifth year, combines important legal information with a practical diary,” Stuart Ayres said.
“It contains a wealth of information, including useful telephone numbers and websites and empowers seniors with information about where to turn for help on issues that are important at this stage of their lives.”
“Produced in large font, and filled with profound and funny quotes related to ageing, this easy-to-use diary covers a different legal topic every month.”
“The chapters cover legal information of relevance to older people, including aged care and retirement villages, financial, family and consumer issues, as well as elder abuse, disputes with neighbours, and future planning.”
Other useful information contained within the diary includes details on how seniors can avoid unwanted telemarketers calls; what seniors need to consider before guaranteeing a loan for a family member and materials on how to stay at home if a partner dies and has children from a previous relationship.
Copies of the Diary are available from my office at 510-534 High Street, Penrith, in many public libraries, at Legal Aid offices and from some community organisations. The diary can also be ordered online at: www.legalaid.nsw.gov.au/publications/order-a-publication
“The diaries have been very popular in previous years so I encourage seniors to get in quick to obtain a copy,” added Stuart Ayres
