How to Talk About Elder Abuse

The National Center on Elder Abuse and the FrameWorks Institute have collaborated to better understand and effectively shift the public’s current perceptions on elder abuse.   During this webinar, the NCEA will introduce aging professionals to the FrameWorks Institute’s research findings and explore an effective  communication strategy on elder abuse.

Guardianship 101

1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET

For some members of our society, legal protection may be necessary even after they have entered adulthood. These individuals may have been injured in an accident, continue to live with debilitating physical illness or psychological disorder, or have some other condition that prevents them from caring for themselves. In these cases, a guardianship may be established. This webinar will focus on situations in which a guardianship may be necessary, how to avoid a guardianship proceeding, and the impact that moving between states can have on an individual that has been subject to a guardianship proceeding.

Britt Burner is an attorney at Burner Law Group P.C. practicing in the areas of elder law, estate planning, guardianships, and trusts and estates. She is the Chair of the New York City Bar Association’s  Committee on the Legal Problems of the Aging and is an active member of the Executive Committee of the Elder Law and Special Needs Planning Section of the New York State Bar Association.  Burner Law Group P.C. has offices in Manhattan, East Setauket, and Westhampton Beach.
