Guardianship and Legal Decision Making

Watch the video of a live, 1-hour presentation of Annette Hines sharing a new perspective on how to explore care options with rather than for a disabled person so that their voice and choices are primary to the planning and decision-making process.
Legal decision-making support takes many forms and should always be the least intrusive necessary. It is our responsibility as a community to ensure that disabled voices are heard and choices are honored. In this session, you will learn how to make this a person-centered process and what the alternatives to guardianship are in our country. Annette outlines the range of options to support legal decision-making, including supported decision-making agreements (“SDM”), Health Care Proxies, Powers of Attorney and more.
