Often older people are faced with the question of who will care for them when they are no longer able to care for themselves, and how to arrange their affairs to ensure that their caregivers are legally and financially prepared and empowered to carry out their wishes. Planning ahead and knowing the right questions to ask can prevent many problems down the road. This session will provide an overview of some of the issues regarding health care decisions, elder abuse and alternatives to guardianship and conservatorship, such as durable powers of attorney, advance directives, and living trusts.

Learn what you need to have in place as a caregiver in order to make decisions on behalf ofyour loved one. And learn what to do to plan for your future as a care recipient.
