Since the mid-1990s, Yale Hauptman has been helping seniors and their families tackle a growing problem in this country, the need for long-term care and how to pay for it. The articles and stories contained in this book illustrate a real life picture of what long-term care looks like. Although “Be Nice to Me—I Pick Your Nursing Home…” is meant to both educate and correct misconceptions, Yale’s desire and goal is to motivate you to take action. The first step is to find a professional in your area who is knowledgeable about long-term care and elder law, and the next step is to put a plan in place immediately. Then, when a crisis does hit, you’ll be emotionally, psychologically, and financially prepared to cope with one of the most difficult times you’ll ever live through.

As a client once said to Yale, “I am so pleased that my son found your firm to help us plan and implement the final chapter of the book of my life.” Every one of you has the opportunity to do the same for your parent or loved one.

Yale Hauptman is a practicing elder law attorney. For over 15 years, he has personally helped thousands of seniors and their families plan for the complicated journey through the long term care system. Yale and his wife, Laurie, live and share a law practice in Northern New Jersey.

Dude, Seriously, It’s NOT All About You! is a humorous rant on how communications and protocol have forever changed how we connect and interact with coworkers, friends, and family in the New Millennium. Chapter after chapter will introduce you to fictional and not so fictional characters, some of whom recognize that civility and treating people well never goes out of style, and others who lose friends and opportunities because they only consider their own needs and wants. From netiquette to filters, to the simple please, thank you, and I’m sorry, the author addresses how we can differentiate ourselves and DARE to stand out from the ordinary in the 24/7 nanosecond world in which we live.

Whether you are a leader, a student, or a parent, this book will show you how easy it really is to get more out of your personal and professional relationships when you consider those you come into contact with, at work or at play.
