Home care provider, Home Instead Senior Care (HISC), has launched the 2018 Senior Citizen Guidebook.

The book is a guide that provides vital information and advice for family carers and older people in Donegal.

The guidebook is an essential aging resource for older people and their families on just about everything – from home care services and support, to using a computer, to handy hacks for the home.

Speaking about the launch of the Guidebook, Ed Murphy, Director of Home Instead Senior Care in Ireland, said: “At Home Instead, we have a mission to enhance the lives of older people and their families, providing home care services that helps older people remain living independently at home.

"This mission is not limited to simply the home care services we provide, as it extends to everything we are involved with and that is why we produce this important resource. We hope it will be of great value to the older people in the Donegal community.”

This is the 13th year the Senior Citizen Guidebook has been in circulation, often referred to as a “bible for older people” by its readers.
