NSW Government

Seniors can better understand their legal rights on issues such as scams, retirement planning, and e-safety which are published in a free 2022 diary from Legal Aid NSW.

There are many legal issues impacting older people, including powers of attorney, aged care, housing, consumer rights, and elder abuse, which are all covered in this publication.

Seniors Minister Natalie Ward said some older people may be unaware of the legal avenues available to them.

“This diary helps break down the barriers which may prevent our seniors from asking for help and to arm them with the tools they need to access services available to them,” Mrs Ward said.

Attorney General Mark Speakman encourages seniors to pick up copies of the Legal Topics for Older People 2022 diary, as it may become a critical resource throughout the year.

“We’re supporting NSW residents to age with dignity, and part of that is ensuring older people know where to turn if they’re experiencing elder abuse or discrimination,” Mr Speakman said.

“This fantastic publication provides details for legal and non-legal support services to help seniors stay connected and informed.”

Pre-order online or pick up a copy from your local Legal Aid NSW office, state MP or library by 15 December.
