WEBINAR: GUARDIANSHIP 101 IN THE NURSING HOME SETTING- What Every Social Worker Should Know

Holly Harmon

The University of Iowa's School of Social Work is offering this free webinar on Tuesday, July 1, 2014 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM  (Eastern Time). Join Erica Wood, from the American Bar Association's "Commission on Law and Aging," for an information-filled session about guardianship. This session will last 90 minutes (including 15 minutes for questions from the audience).

This session will define guardianship and review common legal terms associated with the concept, explain that each state has its own version (although people in all states face some of the same challenges when considering whether to get a guardian appointed for a person with cognitive impairment) and explain how guardianship affects an individual's rights. Erica Wood will also discuss options other than guardianship and how to weigh options. Erica Wood's presentation will conclude with an overview of the role of the nursing home social work in terms of resident guardianship.
