Age Concern produces new resource to help older people keep "Safe and Sound"
If you're wanting information on dealing with pesky telemarketers, unwanted graffiti or even a pot on fire - 'Safe and Sound' has the answers!
Age Concern is the first port of call for older people and their family / whanau in need of information, advice, referral and support.
The "Safe and Sound" booklet includes 23 pages jam-packed with useful tips, tricks and insider information from agencies including the New Zealand Police and Fire Service.
Age Concern National President Liz Baxendine describes "Safe and Sound" as a one-stop shop for advice on safety at home and in the community.
"It is designed either as a stand-alone resource, or to accompany Age Concern talks and seminars and contains a wealth of easily accessible information."
Copies of the booklet will be available at Age Concerns nationwide.
