The nonprofit National Private Duty Association, along with the Illinois Chapter, has announced it will host a consumer education web conference entitled Addressing Legal Issues that Impact Seniors at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 22.
The live and interactive program will provide advice on elder law matters, including pinpointing when you need to address legal issues, what the implications are, and how to ensure that you and your family are protected. The event is free of charge to participants.
The web conference topics include an overview of elder law issues, powers of attorney, informed consent and guardianship, advance directives, will and trusts, and the timing involved for each.
"Caring for an aging parent brings many challenges," said Sheila McMackin, president of NPDA. "It's vital that a family know what legal issues they need to address and the appropriate timing involved. Being knowledgeable of these issues is key to protecting your aging parent, providing the best care possible."
This event's presenter is an expert on social work issues, as well as being an attorney. Joseph T. Monahan, M.S.W., A.C.S.W., J.D. is the legal counsel for the NPDA. He received his bachelor's and master's degree in social work from the University of Illinois in Champaign and his law degree from DePaul University College of Law. He is very involved with training and counseling for several legal and social issues groups.
