Advance care planning will be the focus of an Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (AFTD) webinar on Thursday, August 27, 2020, beginning at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (1:00 p.m. Pacific).

Presenters will be Bryan J. Adler, Esq., a certified elder law attorney from the Rothkoff Law Group, and Cynthia Clyburn, MSW, LCSW, from the University of Pennsylvania’s Neurology Center

Navigating care after an FTD diagnosis can be like facing rough, uncharted waters. This one-and-a-half-hour webinar will provide information on ways to prepare for this challenging journey. The presentation will look at two essential documents: power of attorney and advance directives. 

This webinar will address:

  • The legal definition of capacity and the “gray area” as it relates to FTD and power of attorney  
  • What power of attorney and advance directives can and cannot do legally 
  • Resources and tips to help caregivers form a successful FTD advance care plan 
  • How to identify when more guidance around guardianship/conservatorship may be needed and where to get it
