Info for elderly may be lifesaver
Called "Safe and Sound" the publication gives advice on a raft of subjects, from dealing with pesky telemarketers, unwanted graffiti or even a pot on fire.
In its 23 pages there is information - some of it life-saving - provided by the police, Neighbourhood Support, the Fire Service, Civil Defence and ACC.
And there is some timely information about wanting to switch energy companies to get the best deal.
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's designed either as a stand-alone resource, or to accompany Age Concern talks and seminars and contains a wealth of easily-accessible information," Ms Baxendine said.
Copies of the booklet will be available from Age Concern's Wanganui office in St Hill St.
