Experts Gather at Loyola University Chicago to
Discuss Crucial Tips and Trends in Long-term Care
Loyola’s Elder Law Initiative Presents the 2009 Hurley, McKenna & Mertz Lecture Series
As the baby boomer generation prepares to enter the later stages of life, it is important to address the legal obligations involving long term-care options that are often misunderstood by consumers and attorneys alike. As a part of the Loyola Elder Law Initiative 2009 Hurly, McKenna & Mertz Lecture Series, presenter Eric Carlson, J.D., director of the Long-Term Care Project of the National Senior Citizens Law Center (NSCLC), will offer practical tips to common problems when advocating on residents’ behalf, including a discussion on current trends in long-term care.
In addition to his role at the NSCLC, Carlson advises attorneys, and others from across the country, on long-term care issues and co-counsels litigation on residents’ behalf. He is the author of numerous publications including Long-Term Care Advocacy (Lexis Publishing) and NSCLC’s bi-monthly Long-Term Care Law Reporter.
A reception will follow the discussion. The event is free and open to the Loyola community and members of the media.
