The three important categories that make up elder law are:

Estate planning and administration, including tax questions;
Medicaid, disability and other long-term care problems; and
Guardianship, conservatorship and dedication issues, including fiduciary management.

The history of the Older Americans Act (OAA), initially signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson on July 14, 1965 (the same year Medicare was created), claims credit for creating the Administration on Aging (AOA), a division within the Department of Health and Human Services. The OAA also authorized grants to States for community planning and services plans, capital for research, and training and demonstration projects in the field of aging.

In 1972 Amendments added the national nutrition plan for the elderly. The OAA of 2000 was amended on November 13, 2000 to comprise the National Family Caregiver Support Program, that was meant to help thousands of family members who are struggling to care for their older loved ones who are sick or who have handicaps. The program provides grant funding for combined services between state and local agencies for such things as counselling, support groups, respite and other community services that are based. These services are focused on the treatment of the frail and aging members of society. The plan also provides services geared towards the family units and other older relatives now in the periods of care taking for related children of age and under eighteen years.
