Serious Illness Planning

Paula Puddy, HBA LLB MBA

We all know it’s important to designate an attorney for personal care for ourselves and our clients. However, most planning doesn’t go beyond making such a designation. Our thinking is often limited to "end of life" decisions.

But what about serious illnesses that may not necessarily be terminal? What about ensuring that the designated attorney actually understands the importance of the role they are to play, the values of the person they are representing and what it means to act in the grantor’s best interests?

This video from the Toronto Lawyers Association (TLA) will explain how lawyers can support or advise their clients on the importance of planning for serious illness, and communicating those wishes particularly in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
