LIVINGSTON, NJ - Through the telling of real life stories, Livingston attorney Yale Hauptman’s new book, "Be Nice to Me - I Pick Your Nursing Home: How to Provide for Your Parent's Care Without Going to the Poorhouse or the Nuthouse" guides families who are tackling a growing problem in this country: the need for long-term care and how to pay for it.
