McGill Cares: Understanding the legal, psychosocial and medical assessments required to make decisions on behalf of another person

Wednesday, April 10, 2024 12:00to12:30

Join us on April 10th at noon for the next McGill Cares webcast to support informal caregivers. During candid, 30-minute interviews with leading experts, Claire Webster explores topics related to caring for a loved one with dementia.  

Understanding the legal, psychosocial and medical assessments required to make decisions on behalf of another person 

Stephanie Geller, MSW, is the Team Lead, Clinical Social Worker, at Lianas Senior Transition Support.  She has been working with seniors for the last 25 years, helping them and their families with caregiving issues, including navigating social services, work-life balance issues, stress, anxiety, burnout and coping through major life decisions. 

Anna Kamateros, Notary, TEP, is Department Head, Wills Estates and Planning at KRB Lawyers.  Me Kamateros provides estate and later-life planning services that optimize wealth transfer and reduce estate conflicts.  Her work with respect to estate planning, including the preparation of final wills and testaments and protection mandates, includes advising liquidators on their duties administering the estate.  She is also a researcher for the Chaire de recherche Antoine-Turmel sur la protection juridique des aînés and a consultant on the multisectoral team to help counter the mistreatment of older adults. She is part of the expert committee for the Quebec Chamber of Notaries on the implementation of the law to better protect vulnerable persons. 

The goal of this webcast is to provide clarity on the assessments and legal documentation required to make decisions on behalf of a person who is no longer able to make important decisions for themselves. 

This English webcast is free and open to the public.

McGill Cares is supported by the Amelia Saputo Community Outreach for Dementia Care.
