New Guide for Seniors Available in May

April 1, 2009 by Scott C. Soady

Seniors in San Diego as in other cities across California have many issues that are unique to them: Elder abuse, Medi-Cal planning and eligibility, social security, health care directives and powers of attorney, rights as a grandparent, and various estate planning issues.

There is a great publication published by the California State Bar that will be coming out in May. The guide called Seniors and the Law: A Guide for Maturing Californians is a comprehensive publication which addresses laws and legal issues relating to seniors.

The publication was first printed in 2003 but has been updated for the estimated 5.5 million residents of California who are over 60.

To order a copy in English or Spanish, you can email the California State Bar at seniors@calbar.ca.gov. Orders will be shipped in May.
