Once a child turns 18, parents no longer have the authority to make medical or financial decisions.

A power of attorney enables parents to help their adult children manage financial, legal and healthcare decisions, without their children giving up the right to decide for themselves. This form is especially important for families who have adult children with disabilities.

Join the Macks Center for Jewish Connections for an in-person clinic as experts discuss how you can protect your child’s future with the power of attorney. Following the speaker session, parents and their young adults will have an opportunity to complete power of attorney forms (including the halachic living will), with a notary present.
