McGill Cares Webcast : Planning for the Future and Protecting a Loved One’s Finances
Join us on September 23 at noon for the next webcast in our weekly series, McGill Cares, designed to support informal caregivers. During candid, 30-minute interviews with leading experts, Claire Webster, Alzheimer Care Consultant and Founder of the McGill Dementia Education Program, will explore topics related to caring for a loved one with dementia.
Planning for the Future and Protecting a Loved One’s Finances
Mtre. Rhonda Rudick is a partner at Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg. Her practice includes a strong emphasis on estate planning. Mtre. Janet Michelin is a partner at IMK who regularly represents and advises mandataries, estate liquidators and trustees on their legal obligations. She is currently co-lecturer at McGill University, where she teaches Trial Advocacy. Both graduated from the McGill Faculty of Law in 1996.
Mtres. Rudick and Michelin will describe what needs to be done to ensure the safe management of your loved one’s financial health after a diagnosis of dementia, explain what happens if diagnosis happens after a loss of mental capacity, and share what can be done to protect against financial exploitation and fraud.
