What Happens When You Can’t Take Care of Yourself A Review of New Laws and Regulations
10.30am Monday 29 May
What do we do when we can no longer make decisions? We know today how we want to live the rest of our lives. How can we express our wishes today so that they will have legal validity in the future when we may not be able to express our wishes?
The Knesset and the Ministry of Justice have recently adopted a new legal instrument called an enduring power of attorney.
A regular power of attorney is valid only if one has the mental capability to make decisions. In the past, if one lost his/her mental capacity, the power of attorney became invalid.
The solution was for a guardian to be appointed by the court. This situation has changed and an endurable power of attorney will continue to be valid even if one lost his/her mental capacity.
Aharon Korzen a veteran lawyer has recently completed an intensive course on the enduring power of attorney. He is authorized by the Ministry of Justice to certify an enduring power of attorney. The enduring power of attorney is valid only if it has been certified by an authorized lawyer who has taken a special course.
Advocate Aharon Korzen will speak about the enduring power of attorney and other issues which affect elderly people and of course will be available to answer questions.
