Connecting CommUNITY




We are creating a place where families can gather to share ideas and plan to support their children with special needs.

This is a safe forum to share our thoughts, experiences and knowledge so that we better understand the struggles that lie ahead; an opportunity to bring families together to develop meaningful relationships so we can ensure our kids have a solid plan and better place to live when we are no longer here. 









Guardians & Trustees: Expectations, Responsibilities, & Legal Obligations

Presenter: Trista Carey, Barrister & Solicitor with Schnell Hardy Jones LLP

February 1, 2021 - 7PM
Via Zoom Video Conferencing


When to apply for Guardianship and/or Trusteeship, when orders need to be reviewed or changed, keeping track of decisions made on behalf of the adult, expectations for accounting for the adult’s assets and funds, etc.  In my experience, most people have no idea of what is required when they apply to be the guardian and/or trustee of their loved one.  This information applies not only to those families who have a person with a developmental disability, but also loved ones who lose capacity and don’t have a Power of Attorney and/or Personal Directive in place.  While the length of time the order may be in place differs, the application, criteria, and expectations are the same.  





This is the fourth meeting as we partner with Gateway Association as part of their Families Forward initiative. Each week you can take part in informative and interactive seminars that reach a variety of families.
