Home Instead Senior Care launches Senior Citizen: The Essential Guidebook 2013

Home Instead Senior Care recently launched its free annual handbook and guide “Senior Citizen: The Essential Guidebook 2013”, which is now available throughout Waterford city and county.

Previously known as the Irish Pensioners Handbook, the 2013 guidebook features advice and information on a wide range of issues including allowances and entitlements, medical, health and nutrition matters, the various options for elder care, home safety information, legal and financial information and much more. 

Director of Care at Home Instead Senior Care, Danette Connolly, stated that the guidebook is a definitive guide to successful ageing in Ireland.

“Senior Citizen: The Essential Guidebook 2013” is a comprehensive guide for seniors and their families which will allow them to have access to quality, relevant and up to date information on a range of issues to help them age successfully.”

Danette added, “There is so much information out there, and in many cases, misinformation, pertaining to senior issues.  This can lead to seniors and their families having difficulty in accessing the most relevant and beneficial information about a whole range of topics, such as allowances and entitlements, medical advice, advice around the home, personal safety health and nutrition and dementia and Alzheimer’s care.”


“The purpose of this guidebook is to provide a comprehensive and in depth overview of what support is available to them, how to access a broad range of services and to provide answers to the many questions seniors may have.”

Information in the guide has been gathered and verified from experts in the various fields covered such as the legal, nutrition, home care sectors. The information is reliable, informative and engaging with the aim to support senior citizens and their families live life and age in an informed way so that they can be happy, healthy and independent for as long as possible.
