Sessions will discuss rights and responsibilities of seniors and caregivers
The Ontario Bar Association is offering free online information sessions on the law protecting older adults for Seniors’ Month.
From June 8 to July 9, across 11 sessions, OBA lawyers will be discussing the rights, responsibilities and other legal matters that may be relevant to seniors, their families and their caregivers, including issues like capacity, powers of attorney and remedies for financial abuse.
The OBA’s elder law executive led in the preparation of these information sessions. Natalia Angelini, chairperson of the elder law section and speaker for the first session, said that these presentations seek to “offer participants a measure of comfort and control through increased understanding of the laws in place to protect the rights and safeguard the wellbeing of older adults,” especially given the current situation, when these seniors may be experiencing a sense of heightened vulnerability.
People can register for the online information sessions via the contact information provided on the OBA website.
