What’s New with Advance Directives and Client Self-Determination

While advance directives are considered “ancillary documents” in the context of elder law and estate planning, the wishes they capture become central to clients as they near the end of their lives.

During the recorded webinar Randi Siegel, President of DocuBank, highlights new advance directive documents, such as an advance directive for dementia, new state laws governing end-of-life care, and how both differ across states. We’ll also look at how clients can make their advance directives more meaningful when the time comes and how attorneys can help.

You will learn about:

  • Advance directives for dementia and other advance directive documents.
  • Voluntary stopping of eating and drinking (VSED).
  • Medical aid in dying (MAID).
  • Approaches being taken by individuals to direct their medical treatment at the end of life.

You will also learn about actions they can take and tools they can use to make advance directives more accurate expressions of clients’ wishes and more useful to clients and proxies alike.
