Editorial Reviews

Review

"A very thorough, scholarly presentation of the information with excellent attention to detail. There are a sufficient number of cases and examples, and they do a goad job illustrating the material." — Laura Barnard, Probate Instructor and Attorney

"The second edition magnificently brings the substantive materials up to date, and the entitlements chapter continues to be superb." — Michael A. Pener, Elder Law Instructor and Attorney

From the Back Cover

The field of elder law continues to grow and adapt to the changing demographics in this country. Consequently, clients are more focused than ever on planning for the future disposition of their assets:

  • making new wills
  • setting up trusts for their families
  • executing powers of attorney
  • preparing health care proxies
  • writing living wills, and
  • considering other estate planning devices

New laws recently passed by Congress affect every American in the areas of

  • Taxation
  • Patient's rights
  • Entitlement programs

In addition to responses to current trends, Law and Aging has been expanded in this second edition to include chapters on

  • Diseases of the Aging—providing information on the prevalence, treatment, and prevention of diseases that disproportionately affect older persons
  • Love and Marriage Among the Elderly—recognizing that many elderly persons are widowed or divorced and their estates require special consideration.
