Summary

Seniors are a wide ranging and exponentially growing special status group that the law treats differentially with respect to rights, responsibilities, and benefits. This book is written to inform and assist seniors and those who care for them. The topics covered range from retirement strategies, housing options, and long-term care to federal benefit programs such as Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, and ultimately, to end of life decisions. Whether you are someone looking out for your parents; a new retiree concerned about your legal rights; or one of the growing number of "old old" eighty-five years or older who needs answers to confusing legal issues, this book provides essential information in clear language about timely topics such as reverse mortgages, long-term care insurance, powers of attorney, guardianship, and the hidden problem of elder abuse. Each chapter includes "Did You Know?" opening outlines as well as web-based resources for additional information. The authors are nationally known elder law experts and are frequently asked to consult with national commissions, legislatures, bar associations, and individuals from every walk of life. In Everyday Law for Seniors, they provide advice appropriate for everyone, senior or not (yet).
