The boundaries of Elder Law are difficult to define precisely. Lawrence A. Frolik and Richard L. Kaplan observe that the Elder Law label "increasingly is used to describe the multitude of legal concerns faced by older Americans as they plan their later years and seek to maximize their personal autonomy. These concerns range from age discrimination in employment, to housing alternatives and options, to ensuring control of one's financial affairs, to financing one's medical needs, and ultimately to determining the scope of medical care that one desires."
