Disability Planning

Author: Geoffrey W. White of Geoffrey W. White Law Corporation, Kelowna

This paper from the annual Wills, Estates and Trusts Conference (October 2014) reviews the basics of planning for disability and considers four areas of new developments including: soon-to-be-implemented adult guardianship law; drafting ideas for more robust enduring powers of attorney; the emergence of inter vivos trusts as planning tools for disability; and the impact of the Bentley case for future “health/personal” care planning.
