Over the past few years, Guardianship Abuse has been more prevalent in the news and media. From Netflix's "I Care a Lot" to Britney Spears story and recent documentary, and most recently, Wendy Williams battle, we are not short on challenges people are facing across the nation regarding self-determination. At the same time, Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, mental health challenges and additional precursors of incapacitation continue to increase for those we are serving. There has never been a time in history that this topic has been so important as today. Join us for this information packed session to learn about the importance of and options for Advance Directives, recent changes in Wisconsin Advance Directives and Guardian Training, and a lively problem-solving discussion on the status and issues surrounding guardianship abuse.
