2013 Version of Senior Citizens Handbook Now Available
The VSB’s Senior Lawyers Conference recently updated its Senior Citizens Handbook. This popular resource 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.

A free pdf version is available for download at Hard copies will be provided to area agencies on aging, public libraries, local bar associations, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals, and other medical facilities. They are also available for purchase from the VSB at $4.00 each, or $30.00 for a box of 20. In addition, programs presented by the Senior Lawyers Conference using 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.
