Course Description

This seminar will examine the legal issues that arise because of the decline and loss of mental capacity among the elderly.   We will examine the difficulties that  the loss of capacity causes individuals and their families and the legal responses, such as surrogate decision-making through powers of attorney, guardianship and other legal responses to incapacity,  as well as governmental programs that affect elderly clients such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid .
