2013 Version of Senior Citizens Handbook Now Available

If you’re a senior citizen or soon will be, or a family member or caregiver to a senior, the new Senior Citizens Handbook is an invaluable resource. It has been updated with the latest information on a wide variety of subjects since it last was released in 2009. The book includes an overview of just about everything a senior would want to know about the law, financial issues, health care, wills and other documents, and much more. It’s filled with practical advice on issues such as Medicaid, Alzheimer’s disease and landlord-tenant relations. The book offers information on Social Security, assisted living facilities, pensions, probate, power of attorney, and veterans’ issues. It also includes a list of community-service organizations that provide aid to senior services in a large variety of areas.

Members of the Senior Lawyers Conference updated this popular publication of the Virginia State Bar.

Copies of the handbook will be provided to area agencies on aging, public libraries, local bar associations, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals, and other medical facilities.

Programs presented by the Senior Lawyers Conference utilizing the Senior Citizens Handbook are available to the public. For more information, to schedule a program, or to order copies of the Senior Citizens Handbook please e-mail Stephanie Blanton at or call (804) 775-0576.
