Advance Care Planning: A Legal Workshop for Caregivers
August 11, 2020 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Join us on August 11th from 1:00PM to 2:00PM for a deep dive into capacity planning for your loved ones.
We’re thrilled to welcome Kayla Thompson, a lawyer with Duncan Craig LLP who practices in their Estate Solutions group as our guest speaker! Kayla works with clients planning for the future, as well as families working through difficult transitions with loved ones, including dealing with capacity issues.
In this online workshop she will be sharing important information on:
- Powers of Attorney
- Personal Directives
- Other legislative options, such as guardianship and trusteeship planning
- Supported decision making and co-decision making
This is a workshop full of valuable information that you do not want to miss!
Please note that she will provide an in-depth analysis for legal issues surrounding incapacity, including personal directives, powers of attorney, and the Adult Guardianship and Trusteeship Act, and to answer general and hypothetical questions. She will not however be able to give legal advice to individual attendees, as the Law Society prevents her from doing such without first running a conflict check.
