Health Care Surrogates at Brookdale Buck Creek

September 20 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

September 20, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm – Health Care Surrogates at Brookdale Buck Creek – Complimentary Admission

An area of healthcare often encountered but usually not well explained is advanced planning and all of the legal terminology that it entails. From a consumer perspective, many people take advance planning for granted and assume that all will be handled without the need for legal documents.  From a healthcare provider perspective, the determination of who can make decisions for admission to a healthcare provider or treatment, or even end-of-life decisions, can be difficult with or without formal documentation stating a consumer’s wishes. This presentation will help you understand the common forms of healthcare surrogates (those with a legal right to make decisions on behalf of another).

Following this presentation the participant will be able to:

  • Identify what a power of attorney is and what powers it provides, including varying types: durable,
    springing, healthcare, financial
  • Define what a guardianship/conservatorship is and what powers it provides
  • Discuss the concepts of capacity and competency and their similarities and differences
  • Determine who gets to make decisions and/or identify the questions to ask to make the determinations

For Reservations or more information, call 937-390-0432.

Brookdale Buck Creek is located at 3270 Middle Urbana Road, Springfield, OH 45502.
