About the Program:
This introductory program to elder law will give attendees the ability to
handle a wide array of legal issues facing Connecticut seniors. Participants
will learn the ethical rules of representing seniors and how to deal with
incapacity issues. Advocacy in nursing homes and assisted living facilities
will also be discussed. Attendees will leave with a more developed
understanding of the differences between public benefit programs, such as
Medicare, Supplemental Security Income, Medicaid, and Social Security.
Long-term care planning will receive special emphasis, including ways to
qualify for Medicaid, the merits of special needs trusts, and obtaining
long-term care insurance.
