As the elderly population, and the need for long-term care, continue to increase, experts in healthcare law and estate planning stress the need to promote family caregiving through legislation. A recent article on the law of succession proposes changing the Uniform Probate Code (UPC) to include a modified elective share for family members who provided long-term care to the decedent.

See Thomas P. Gallanis and Josephine Gillter, "Family Caregiving and the Law of Succession: A Proposal," 45 Univ. Mich. J. L. Reform 4 (2012).
