Webinar – Power of Attorney for Personal Care: Safeguard Wishes and Take Steps to Prevent Abuse
January 19, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Elder Abuse Prevention Ontario in partnership with CLEO we will discuss key issues when creating a Power of Attorney for Personal Care. Powers of Attorney are legal documents that give another person the power to make certain decisions when a person is no longer able to make them on their own. Learn what is needed to help prevent abuse and protect wishes about healthcare, housing, and safety.
Participants will also learn how to use CLEO’s Power of Attorney Guided Pathway, an easy-to-use online tool that helps create a Power of Attorney.
