Part 1: Power of Attorney for Personal Care

Recorded on November 3, 2022

A power of attorney is a legal document in which one person gives another person the power to make personal and financial decisions for them when they are unable.

Part 1 outlines important issues that should be considered when preparing a Power of Attorney for Personal Care. This gives another person the power to make decisions about your personal care when you are no longer able. This could include things like healthcare, housing, food, hygiene, and safety. Participants also learn how to use CLEO’s Power of Attorney Guided Pathway, an easy-to-use interactive tool that helps people prepare a Power of Attorney.
