Power of Attorney and Guardianship Workshop

FLORENCE, Wis. — You never know what the future holds, so it’s best to be prepared. One way to prepare is to have a Power of Attorney in place, a legal document in which you designate another person to act on your behalf and make decisions.

The Aging and Disability Resource Center of Florence County will host “An Introduction to Powers of Attorney and Guardianship” workshop from 1 to 3 p.m. Thursday at the Northeast Wisconsin Technical College learning center in Aurora, Wis.

Grace Knutson from the Guardianship Support Center of Madison, Wis., will explain the options and reason for advance planning, including the difference between powers of attorney and guardianships, plus the roles and responsibilities of power of attorney agents and guardians.

Registration for this free workshop must be done by Tuesday. Transportation is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. To register for the workshop and schedule transportation, call the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Florence County at 715-528-4890.
