Advanced Care Planning
This presentation on Advanced Care Planning will focus on legal tools for decision-making that every adult needs to consider. Christopher McCarthy will address Powers of Attorney, when they’re effective, what the Agent can do, and common problems; Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) Orders and Advance Medical Directives (AMDs), plus statutory decision makers if you don’t have an AMD; and the employment of Guardians and Conservators, a last resort when there is no legally authorized decision-maker.
Presenter, Christopher McCarthy is an attorney with ThompsonMcMullan law firm. Mr. McCarthy specializes in Elder Law and understands the many legal, financial, and healthcare options most suitable to achieving his clients’ goals. He advises seniors and their families in estate planning, estate and trust administration, long-term care planning, special needs planning, and adult guardianship.
