Health Care Surrogates at Brookdale Buck Creek

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
