Looking After Dependant Parents - Dealing with Legal Issues
Our parents took care of us and we take care of our children. That's the usual assumption about how things should go. However, sometimes our parents, (or other adults we know), lose the legal capacity to make their own decisions and we're called on to assume this responsibility. This presentation is an opportunity to learn about the legal issues involved in these situations and the options available to address them. Areas of discussion include:
Determining when capacity is lost - how does this happen and is the loss always total?
When are guardians or trustees needed and how are they appointed?
What parts do personal directives and enduring powers of attorney play?
How can accountability and liability issues be addressed?
