There are a wide variety of legal issues involved when caring for a loved one. These issues are overly complex. They range from medical decision and financial issues and managing one’s incapacity. This workshop will explore everything from proactive planning to crisis planning. We will discuss probate court issues, such as guardianships, conservatorships, durable powers of attorney and advance directives. Additionally, you will learn how to use proactive estate planning to protect assets from Medicaid. However, this workshop is not a wills and trusts presentation. This workshop is necessary for everyone who work with financial issues in dealing with the cost of care such as accountants, financial planners as well as all caregivers and anyone confronted with a health challenge.
