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).

About the Author:

Larry Frolik is Distinguished Faculty Scholar and Professor of Law at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and an adjunct professor of law in the University of Miami School of Law LL.M program in estate planning. One of the original academic creators of elder law, he is a nationally recognized expert on the legal aspects of aging. A prolific author, he has authored a dozen books in addition to his classic work, Advising the Elderly or Disabled Client. He is a member of Phi Beta Kappa and an honors graduate from Harvard Law School.

Review:

"An excellent explanation of the interplay of Medicaid and long-term care insurance and a thorough review of housing options for seniors. The authors make their subjects accessible with clear writing and concrete examples and by beginning each discussion with 'Did You Know' points that help put the information in context. This comprehensive primer on elder law is useful not only to seniors and their families. By adding citations to primary statutory and regulatory authority, Frolik and Whitton make it useful to law library patrons as well."
―Library Journal

“The clarity of the explanations in this book set it apart from others. . . . Everyday Law for Seniors provides a clear, concise, understandable tour of the most critical issues in law and aging. You will definitely want to share this book with friends and family, and if you work in a helping field, with clients.”
―Charles P. Sabatino, Director, ABA Commission on Law and Aging

“Everyday Law for Seniors is a clearly written, understandable, comprehensive legal guide. Readers will especially appreciate the authors’ helpful insights about how seniors can best use law’s benefits and protections to further their own economic security, finance needed health and long term care, find and keep suitable housing, and assure that in case of legal incapacity surrogate financial and health care decisions will be made honestly and in accordance with the senior’s wishes.”
―Edward D. (Ned) Spurgeon, Executive Director, Borchard Foundation Center on Law and Aging
