Larry Frolik on Later-Life Health Care

Professor Larry Frolik has published The Law of Later-Life Health Care and Decision Making (ABA, 2006).
Today's aging population presents new challenges and unique legal questions in many areas of the law, but none more so than in health law and in the legal consequences of decision making for those of diminished mental capacity. The Law of Later-Life Health Care and Decision Making takes a close look at the manner in which the law regulates and reacts to health care and personal decision making for the elderly. Professor Lawrence Frolik's groundbreaking scholarly work in the area of guardianship and elder law has earned him recognition as a national expert on the legal issues of older Americans. Here, he guides the reader through the many ins and outs of what can be a complicated and confusing mixture of federal and state statutes and case law. Topics covered include: * Paying for Health Care * Long-Term Care Housing Options * Paying for Long-Term Care * Legal Implications of Mental Incapacity: Guardianship, Conservatorship & Powers of Attorney
