Alternatives to Guardianship


Robert Dinerstein, J.D.

In this workshop, we will discuss the increasing focus on alternatives to plenary guardianship for people with disabilities, including limited guardianship, powers of attorney, health care proxies, advance directives, and, in particular, recent developments in supported decision making.  These alternatives allow the person to retain increased and even full autonomy while making available resources to provide assistance in decision making if desired.
