Patrice helps us navigate the land mines of financial POA issues.
The Power of Attorney Project Podcast
Funded in part by the Government of Canada's New Horizons for Seniors Program.
The Power of Attorney Project is a two year technology-based project that brings together a wide variety of experts from various industries and disciplines to educate adult children and seniors about Power of Attorney issues. In our Podcast series, legal, financial and social service experts share their knowledge and give individuals and families an opportunity to have their questions addressed, increase their understanding and develop skills and strategies to help them deal with some of the complex and difficult issues of aging.
We produced a full day workshop with experts speaking on a variety of POA topics. For example, we had three fantastic lawyers, several social services professionals and the OPP talking about POA investigations.
