‘Legal Decisions: Who Makes the Decisions and When” Seniors Count workshop
NASHUA – Caregivers of older adults often struggle with understanding the logistics of decision-making, especially when older adults have diminished mental capacity.
Presented on Monday, June 8, the “Legal Issues: Who Makes the Decisions and When” workshop presented by Seniors Count-Nashua will address how to assist older adults in planning ahead for their care, and what legal documents are needed to do so.
