Elder Law is designed to introduce the realities of a modern elder law practice in serving the needs of America’s growing elderly population. Each chapter explains the development of important case and statutory law within an historical perspective while offering an expansive review of elder law terminology. Well-organized, and easy-to-read, the material appeals to a wide audience with or without a legal background. Practical assignments, such as hypotheticals, Elder Law Practice scenarios and Ethics Alert problems focus on real-world insights. Elder Law covers the wide array of overlapping topics and challenges facing elder law legal professionals today. Essential elder law topics covered include advance directives, wills, guardianship and conservatorship issues, Medicaid and Medicare planning, long-term care planning, financial planning and trusts, housing options, physical and financial elder abuse, age discrimination, grandparents rights, love and marriage.
