Working With Aging Clients: A Guide for Legal, Business, and Financial Professionals

“It does not matter what specialty we have or what market we work in, nor whether we are lawyers, business advisors, financial professionals or others. We are now facing or will soon be facing a rising tide of aging folks among us.”
The chapters improve your understanding of:
·       myths and stereotypes about aging;
·       difficulties working with aging clients;
·       common elder-specific issues;
·       communication with elders;
·       family conflicts regarding elders; and
·       resolution techniques that can help keep issues with aging clients from escalating 
Rosenblatt combines her nursing perspective with her legal experience to deepen the reader’s understanding of the aging person/client, presenting practical concepts that any professional can use. Woven throughout the book are lessons from Rosenblatt’s many years of working directly with elder people, both as patients and as clients she represented, as well as in her mediation work.
Another common theme of “Working with Aging Clients” is that we all age differently. Rosenblatt writes, “There are nonagenarians who are athletes. Some people over 100 years of age are still mentally sharp. And don’t be surprised if you meet a spry elder who needs no accommodation, tells you to get on with it, and otherwise busts every stereotype you’ve ever held about aging persons.”
