This handbook provides information on a range of legal subjects of interest to seniors. By “seniors”, we mean people who are 65 years of age and older. It is written in "plain English" and is intended as a basic resource for seniors, their friends, relatives and advocates. The handbook is divided into sections by subject area. Each section begins with a brief introduction to the subject area covered and follows with a series of questions and answers. At the back you will find a glossary (see bolded words) and a list of the organizations and resources mentioned in this handbook that may be of further help to you.
