Publisher: Carolina Academic Press
Mastering Elder Law explores concerns that commonly arise when representing the elderly client. The book focuses on public benefits, retirement systems, age discrimination, wealth transfers, medical decision making (including ''the right to die''), guardianships and conservatorships, durable powers of attorney, long-term care, housing, abuse, and ethical problems. The book also explores overarching themes such as the tension that results when the state simultaneously attempts to protect its vulnerable citizens and promote their autonomy. The text includes examples throughout and provides a straightforward description of complex topics such as Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.
This book is part of the Carolina Academic Press Mastering Series edited by Russell L. Weaver, University of Louisville School of Law.
