“Be Nice to Me – I Pick Your Nursing Home” and More at October 9 SAGE Program
Friday, September 28, 2012 • 3:05pm
If your family is struggling with long term health care issues for a loved one and how to financially afford it, come to SAGE Eldercare on Tuesday, October 9 from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm to hear from Yale Hauptman, Esq., on how to approach this growing problem for many families.
Mr. Hauptman’s presentation will be taken from his personal experience, which is part of his recently published book, “Be Nice to Me – I Pick Your Nursing Home: How to Provide for Your Parent’s Care without Going to the Poorhouse or the Nuthouse.”
“As the population ages, there are more and more families who are dealing with long term health care issues for their aging love one,” stated Yale Hauptman, Esq. “My goal is to educate and motivate families and caregivers to take action and put a plan in place so that when a crisis arises, they will be emotionally, psychologically and financially prepared to cope during one of the most difficult times of their lives.”
For almost 20 years, Mr. Hauptman has focused his practice on elder law in Livingston, NJ. He has personally helped many seniors and their families plan for the complicated and emotional journey through the long term health care system. A graduate of Rutgers University and Albany Law School, he is licensed to practice law in NJ and NY. He is a frequent lecturer on elder law topics to attorneys, financial and health care professionals, as well as the general public. Additionally, he has been featured in both local and national publications, including The Bergen Record, The Star-Ledger and Financial Advisor Magazine, among others.
