    More than ever, Americans and their attorneys are concerned about their healthcare and the consequences of healthcare decision making for individuals of diminished capacity. In particular, older individuals need counseling and guidance about healthcare decisions that arise at the end of life. The Law of Later-Life Healthcare and Decision Making, Second Edition provides a comprehensive description of the manner in which the law regulates and reacts to healthcare and personal decision making for the elderly. Readers of this book will find answers to their questions about healthcare decision making. And for those difficult questions that have no answers, this book will outline the legal issues and the doctrines that are at play. The goal of the book is to help the reader understand the complex law that governs healthcare decision making.

    There have been significant case law developments and innumerable statutory changes since the original edition was issued over a decade ago.
