Course Description

This program was recorded on March 27th, 2018

As individuals age, many become incapacitated due to dementia or Alzheimer's and are no longer able to care for themselves. In this presentation, attorney David Eastman will cover the basics of a guardianship and conservatorship proceeding and why it is so important for individuals to have estate plans in place that name health care agents. These documents designate a person to make decisions on behalf of an individual who is no longer able to care for themselves or manage their own financial affairs.
