RWU Law Adjunct Professor Mark B. Heffner launches a new blog on Elder Law and Long Term Care Planning, featuring some of the nation's top experts.

“Counseling clients facing the prospect of $10,000 per month in nursing home and other costs is perhaps the most challenging aspect of Elder Law,” Heffner said. “Because in addition to knowing substantive law – in areas ranging from public benefits to tax planning – the Elder Law practitioner must be aware of community resources, such as geriatric care managers, client-centered financial advisors and excellent providers of long-term care services.”

Adjunct Professor Mark HeffnerA certified elder law attorney based in Warwick, R.I., Heffner serves as the blog’s editor. But, he says, “the best part is that nationally known practitioners and other professionals whom I have known or admired for decades have agreed to serve as contributing editors.”

They include:

Some of the topics covered since the blog’s launch include:

Heffner said he looks forward to covering “many more issues related to long-term care planning,” and invited members of the legal community to leave feedback and questions using the blog’s comment system, or to write “directly to me or any of our authors via email.”
