Powers of Attorney for Personal Care Part 1 – The Knowledge Deficit

Share to social media

Powers of attorney for personal care are not well understood by the persons who sign them, the persons who act pursuant to them (called an attorney), their lawyers and other professional advisors, doctors, nurses, other health practitioners, or administrators and other staff at hospitals, long-term care homes, retirement homes or other institutions. This knowledge deficit can result in conflict, confusion and a confounding of the grantor’s intention and expectations. And harm.
