This course is part of the Certificate on Aging. 

This course reviews the legal context in which issues associated with aging are addressed—issues such as guardianship, trusts, Powers of Attorney, Medicaid, and long-term care. The course also examines Social Security and other eligibility issues as well as housing, community-based care, probate and wills, and advance directives regarding medical care and surrogate medical decision making.
