Growing older? What’s the alternative? You don’t have to go it alone. Law professors Kenney Hegland and Lawrence Frolik are here to help by sharing what they’ve learned over the years. Why Did I Walk Into This Room? covers what you’ll have to deal with: estate planning, home safety, depression, retirement angst, paying for health care, senior moments, hospice, financial scams and elder abuse. The coverage is encyclopedic, but the authors have lightened the load with poems, down-home philosophy and existential musings.
“Why Did I Walk into This Room? is a humorous look at the process of aging. Written by 2 attorneys who…offer practical advice on the process of aging…with a side dish of humor! The time and day of our passing is not known to us, so we have to prepare like we have an extended life as a senior. This book offers advice and informs on many topics like trusts, health care directives, guardianships, and probate. It's an easy read that entertains in the process.” —Andrew H. Hook, President of Hook Law Center
