"Conservatorship Services in Tennessee" will be presented by Carol Silvey for seniors 60 years and up who receive free AMSE admission on Tuesdays to participate.
Participants attending the workshop will get an overview of the statues governing conservatorship. A definition of terms used in this legal process and who the statutes were mandated to protect will be addressed. Discussion of typical scenarios that often lead to the need for conservatorships will be explored. Find out how the powers of attorney and durable powers of attorney differ from conservatorship. Get to know the range of rights that can be placed in the hands of a substitute decision maker. There will be discussion of "best interest" versus "wishes of the individual" to conclude the session.
The final program for Senior Moments at AMSE will be the Health Resource Fair 9 a.m.-noon Jan. 13. For information on AMSE programs, events, exhibits and activities, go online to www.amse.org
