Empowering Caregivers Workshop: The Legal Perspective: Practical Insights for Patients and Families About Decision-Making and Advance Planning
November 18, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Learn more about upcoming Empowering Caregivers Workshops here!
After receiving a diagnosis, patients and families often have questions about how to put their legal affairs in order: What should we be doing now? Can we get a Power of Attorney? What is guardianship? This presentation will provide answers and offer practical information for Penn Memory Center patients and their families. Topics include: How law and medicine approach the question of cognitive capacity, ways to plan ahead for future decision-making, what to do if planning ahead is no longer an option, when you do (and don’t) need to hire an attorney, and a discussion of relevant Pennsylvania laws and legal documents that can help. Bring your questions for this interactive presentation.
