Seniors confront many issues that require a basic understanding of the law, from financing long-term care to protecting themselves in the event of incapacity. This book provides a clearly written and concise guide to the range of legal options and rights available to seniors.
Written by two law professors and elder law experts, and part of a series of "Everyday Law" primers, Everyday Law for Seniors explains how those in their 60s and older can use the law to their best advantage. The book covers a wide variety of topics of interest to seniors, including age discrimination, Social Security, retirement benefits, Medicare and Medicaid, guardianships, powers of attorney, and elder abuse. In clear, understandable English, each chapter describes the law and gives seniors an overview of their legal rights and protections to help them make the best possible decisions.
The authors don't offer legal advice and the book is not meant as a substitute for a good lawyer. Instead, the straightforward information the book provides can help readers understand their options, ask good questions, and better comprehend any legal advice they receive.
