We all deserve to feel confident in making important decisions for ourselves and our families, but it can be difficult to know where to turn for guidance in tough times. If you or a loved one need some extra support in making healthcare, educational, or financial decisions, join Quality Trust in September for a webinar series on the decision-making tools available for adults in the District of Columbia. This series is co-sponsored by the Council for Court Excellence, Legal Counsel for the Elderly, and Disability Rights DC at University Legal Services.
Decision-making tools can provide additional support, guidance, and security as you navigate making your own health care, educational, or financial decisions, or as you support a family member, friend, or other loved one in doing the same. Whatever level of support you or a loved one needs — from a little bit of help every once in a while, to a greater and more consistent degree of assistance — this series can help you feel the decision-making confidence you deserve.
During this series, you will learn about decision-making tools such as Supported Decision-Making Agreements, Powers of Attorney, Educational Representative for Adult Student, and Advance Instruction for Mental Health Treatment, among others. The dates, times, and topics are as follows:
• Part 1: Health Care, September 9, 2021, from 6:30-7:30 pm, RSVP here
• Part 2: Education, September 14, 2021, from 6:30-7:30 pm, RSVP here
• Part 3: Finances, September 22, 2021, from 6:30-7:30 pm, RSVP here
