Tips & Pitfalls for Acting as an Attorney for Property and Personal Care

Andrea McEwan

Due to an aging baby boomer population, the total number of seniors has surpassed the number of children in Canada. Proper planning is required to ensure that, should an individual no longer be capable of looking out for his or her own best interest, a family member or other person will be given responsibility under a Power of Attorney to make decisions for property and personal care.

What are the duties and obligations of those appointed as an “attorney” under the Power of Attorney document? What are some of the practical considerations in making decisions for an incapable person?

Join Andrea McEwan, Aird & Berlis Estates & Trusts Group Partner, as she provides tips and pitfalls for acting as an attorney for property and personal care.

Topics Include:

Overview of power of attorney for property and personal care

Duties and standard of care for managing property and end-of-life decisions

Restrictions and conditions of acting as an attorney

How to protect yourself from liability
