Join Michelle Allen for "Essential Legal Docs and Veterans A&A"

Lilburn, GA  30047 Map

The options for paying for long-term care are limited. Did you know that Medicare will not pay for home care or assisted living community care? Do you know what Medicaid provides? Are you aware of the Veterans Administration Aid and Attendance benefit and the recent changes to the benefit? Most families do not realize their limited options until they are in a crisis—usually when their loved one is about to be discharged from a hospital. Making decisions while in a crisis can be stressful and result in bad choices. This seminar is intended to provide information prior to a crisis. Learn how to best find, get and pay for good long-term care.

"Guardianship and Ethics: How to Avoid Removing Someone's Rights"

The Guardianship/Conservatorship process is a necessary, complicated intersection of our medical and legal worlds. Oftentimes, the healthcare providers are the first to recognize that a patient’s capacity may be questionable. Recommending that a family seek guardianship over their loved one may mean that complicated medical issues and complex family dynamics will be litigated in a courtroom. What ethical implications and unintended outcomes can result from this recommendation? In this CE, Hurley Elder Care Law will offer information on the basics of guardianship/conservatorship, explore the ethical issues surrounding removing someone’s rights, and offer practical alternatives to guardianship. Current information on Georgia’s Advance Directives and Powers of Attorney will also be provided.

Please join Danielle Humphrey, JD, CELA, as she presents a free lunch CE on "The Ethics of Surrogate Decision Making: Who’s in Charge?"

Healthcare professionals recognize that dealing with a surrogate decision maker (healthcare agent or next of kin) is often necessary. Yet knowing who is the legal decision maker is not always clear. During the presentation Hurley Elder Care Law will present information explaining the four different types of surrogate decision makers and their necessary legal documents. The discussion will feature a review of ethical dilemmas that health care agents face and examine guidelines for making decisions on behalf of someone else. Through a series of case studies, the presenters will discuss how healthcare professionals sometimes struggle with patient autonomy and informed consent when surrogates are involved.
