A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO DEALING WITH CLIENTS, FAMILY MEMBERS, AND LOVED ONES
Financial, Legal, and Personal Issues of the Elderly and Individuals Diagnosed with Dementia
Legal professionals may earn 4 Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Credits, approved by the Supreme Court of Ohio, by participating in the following two-part program:
A 2016 Harris Poll of more than 2,000 adults 18 or older found that 43% of respondents have assumed management of an aging family member’s finances while 66% have a durable power of attorney. Elder-care issues are often talked about, but just as often are left as things to deal with at a later time. Familial relationships can be a barrier to seeking outside legal and financial counsel. This activity will clearly outline the key personal, financial, medical and legal circumstances that, upon the diminished physical and/or mental capacity of a loved one, must be addressed. To be truly effective, legal and financial conversations with clients about their aging loved ones must be approached with compassion and sensitivity above and beyond the rule of law or the financial bottom line. Attendees will be provided with significant practical content from one of Ohio’s most trusted providers of senior services.
Financial and legal issues are not the first thing most people think about when faced with a diagnosis or providing care for a loved one with dementia, but these are critical issues that cannot be overlooked or delayed. There are several legal documents that the person with dementia should sign in the event his/her decision-making capability is diminished in the later stages of the illness so care and financial decisions are made by someone that he/she trusts. Final wishes of all kinds that are important to the individual, such as preferred living situation, long-term care plans, care for a pet, and even funeral arrangements, need to be made while the person with dementia still has decision making capacity. Attendees will be provided with important information on communicating effectively with clients and family members facing this difficult diagnosis and on prolonging quality of life.
