Advance Planning: Your Parents’ Legal and Financial Documents
Doors open at 5:00pm • Refreshments will be served
Advance care documents ensure one’s wishes regarding care, medical intervention, finances, etc., regardless of the person’s ability to make decisions for herself/himself. Legal documents provide peace of mind for the older adult and family, protect finances, minimize vulnerability, and reduce uncertainty. They also can help families and caregivers avoid disagreements and guilt as well as clarify the role of the Power of Attorney (POA). This ACAP program is designed to educate participants about advance care planning so that they may be more aware of the advantages, terminology, and necessary documents.
