THE ELDER PREPAREDNESS SELF-ASSESSMENT TOOL

TEPSAT was developed by Robert Abrams, a long-time practitioner and expert in the field of elder law. Mr. Abrams is the co-founder of the law firm of Abrams Fensterman and currently serves as Of Counsel to the firm.

The Elder Preparedness Self-Assessment Tool (TEPSAT) is an on-line, interactive, performance-based tool that will help you measure how prepared you are for the elder years. The higher your score, the higher your level of preparedness. As you "take the test," TEPSAT directs you to valuable tools and resources that will help you further prepare for decision-making in those later years.

TEPSAT is a fun, easy way to gain information and learn about resources that can help you become better informed about aging issues—for your own benefit and to help you in your caregiving responsibilities for aging parents, relatives, and friends.

You can encourage other members of your family to take the test, too. The questions provide a great basis for starting family discussions around issues and topics that are often difficult to bring up and make decisions about.
