New Times, New Challenges: Law and Advice for Savvy Seniors and Their Families
Students taking Elder Law or Health Law might find this book helpful to get a quick introduction to topics you don't cover in your course or as a second opinion for those you do. As a savvy law professor, even if you don't teach those courses, particularily if you don't teach those courses, you get tough questions from friends and relatives — “Should I have a living trust? What's a health care power of attorney? What's a disgruntled heir?” Here's help for dire times. Written by a law professor with the practical insights of an elder law lawyer, it covers everything from retirement (finances, housing, Medicare) to advance directives, elder abuse to nursing homes, scams, bill collectors, age discrimination, to disability in the family and hospice. It even covers sex, driving, and what it feels like growing old, having everyone start calling you “dear” and giving you, without even asking, those dreaded discounts. This book is a rewrite of Alive and Kicking: Legal Advice for Boomers by Kenney F. Hegland and Robert B. Fleming.
