Avoiding scams, planning for retirement, making a will or getting financial help are just some of the topics included in the free 2023 Legal Topics for Seniors Diary, which seniors can now collect or order online.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke is encouraging local seniors to collect a free copy of the 2023 Legal Topics for Seniors Diary to help them plan for the year ahead.
“I’m pleased to share that seniors across the electorate can now pick up a free 2023 Legal Aid diary from my electorate office’s located at Young and Junee, while stocks last,” Ms Cooke said.
“This helpful diary provides practical tips and information about common issues impacting seniors.”
Seniors can also pre-order a free copy of the 2023 Legal Topics for Seniors Wall Calendar from the Legal Aid NSW website, which will be released on 9 December.
Attorney General Mark Speakman said some seniors can be impacted by legal issues relevant to ageing.
“The information in the Legal Topics for Seniors Diary helps seniors to understand their rights, and details where they can access advice and support if they are experiencing discrimination, elder abuse or financial exploitation.”
“Both the diary and calendar provides useful information in clear, straightforward language.”
Minister for Seniors Mark Coure said the Legal Aid diary provides simple yet effective tips to help seniors stay up-to-date.
“In this day and age, it can be hard to keep on top of everything we need to do or be across,” Mr Coure said.
“The diary and calendar speaks directly to seniors with topics and information to help them know when to take action on certain matters, or even act as a prompt to make sure their affairs are in order,” Mr Coure said. The calendar and diary includes artwork by Aboriginal artist of Dharawal, Bidjigal and Dhungutti descent Garry Purchase
