Professor Sharona Hoffman's Aging with a Plan Provides Legal and Other Resources on Aging

Aging with a Plan book cover

The second edition of Aging with a Plan by Sharona Hoffman, the Edgar A. Hahn Professor of Law and co-director of the Law-Medicine Center at Case Western Reserve University School of Law, was released in January 2022. The book is a concise and comprehensive resource for readers approaching middle age and beyond and facing the prospects of their own aging and of caring for elderly loved ones. It addresses legal planning, retirement savings and expenses, long-term care, end-of-life decisions,  navigating the health care and insurance systems, driving, retirement communities, and more.

“Everyone is going to face challenges as they age, and little in life prepares us for many of them,” Hoffman said. “It is often very difficult to make good decisions when you are in the midst of a crisis that you did not anticipate.  This book tries to provide people with the tools they will need to help themselves and others.”
