We previously blogged on how the French are seeking new ways to manage Alzheimer's care. In a related story, the Chinese are moving to enforce care for older parents.
Some interesting highlights from the law:
1. Children have a responsibility to visit their parents.
2. Requires children to support their elderly parents.
3. Calls for the government to provide services for the elderly population in poverty.
4. Calls for taking the elderly into account in economic planning and urban design..
While the effectiveness of this law is subject to debate, it is interesting to see how other countries are dealing with the treatment of their elderly citizens.
If you have an elderly loved one and would like to meet with an experienced Michigan Elder Law attorney regarding the options available to them, call the attorneys at Barsch & Joswick, PLLC today for a free consultation.
