Understanding Powers of Attorney – Caregiver Superpowers is an mmLearn.org presentation for the James L. West Center for Dementia Care.
A caregiver’s job is difficult, but there are tools (Powers of Attorney) that can make your caregiving job easier. Having these tools in place before they are needed can alleviate already stressful and tense situations. Attorney Carol Bertsch explains the differences between various powers of attorney, the rights, limitations, what they cover, how to appoint your agent(s), why you need alternate agents, when the POW becomes effective and more.
Through a partnership with mmLearn.org, James L. West offers the following video library with real-life, practical skills caregivers can start using today. mmLearn.org’s mission is to improve the quality of care and the quality of life for older adults by providing family caregivers, pastoral care providers and healthcare professionals with training and education based on evidence and best practices, using progressive technology and other advanced delivery methods.
An extension of Morningside Ministries, mmLearn.org has produced more than 300 caregiver training videos and provides training to caregivers worldwide. This session was recorded in December 2019.
