Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today encouraged Penrith seniors to register to receive a free 2020 Legal Topics for Older Persons Diary to help them understand their legal rights and navigate the justice system.

“The 2020 Legal Topics for Older Persons Diary is a great resource for seniors in our local community,Stuart Ayres said.

“The free diary is full of helpful tips and advice, including how to access the NSW Government’s cost saving initiatives.”

“These diaries are very popular so I encourage local seniors to give my office a call to reserve a copy,” said Stuart Ayres.

Attorney General Mark Speakman and Acting Minister for Seniors Geoff Lee launched the Legal Aid Diary on Friday, with 80,000 copies of the diary available to seniors across NSW from next week.

“Having the diary at their fingertips will make it easier for seniors to keep on top of legal issues such as scams, insurance claims and elder abuse,” Mr Speakman said.

“It doesn’t matter how savvy you are, dodgy operators are always looking for ways to take advantage of older people so it is vital they know what to look out for and how to protect themselves.” 

Seniors will find information on investment, dating and romance scams in the diary. Scams use a variety of methods to con victims, including phishing emails and fake phone calls to steal identities or access bank accounts.

“Another major issue that is addressed in the Legal Aid diary is elder abuse which can take many different forms including physical, emotional, financial and neglect,” Dr Lee said.

“Elder abuse is distressing and it is important victims understand there are confidential and free support services available to improve their safety, and to give them the tools and confidence to report it to authorities.”
