The World Congress on Adult Guardianship will be held in Washington DC, May 28-30. This event is the most important meeting this year for advocates such as ourselves.
The World Congress will discuss the both problems and solutions in guardianship. There will be sessions on person centered care and the move from surrogate decision-making toward supported decision-making. There will be discussion of rights in guardianship and recommendations for oversight of guardians.
There is a LOT we can learn and bring back to our communities. We may have opportunities to share our own experiences and seek guidance from leaders in the field.
Bring an open mind and plenty of paper for taking notes. Details in the attached brochure.
