About the Program
Today, and every day for the next 20 years, 10,000 more people will turn 65. By 2030, 90 million Americans or 1 in 5 persons will be 65 years or older. This panel, composed of experienced elder law practitioners, will discuss:
- Ethical considerations when representing older persons, including diminished capacity and conflicts of interest;
- Elder decision making, including guardianships and alternatives;
- Healthcare and housing for the elderly, including the role of government and private benefits; and
- How to prevent elder abuse, neglect, or exploitation.
