About the Changes to the Standards Course: Part 2

This course, the second of a two-part series, focuses on changes to the Standards of Practice that were implemented last year as a result of the recommendations from the Third National Guardianship Summit in 2011. The Standards were originally adopted to guide guardians in the decision-making process. This webinar provides participants with a better understanding of the Standards of Practice for guardians of the person, including appropriate housing, level of care, ethical and cultural considerations, community resources and more.

This webinar is not currently available in a live format, but it is available as a recorded webinar. The course is led by Helen Ferraro Zaffram. Helen is supervising attorney for the Guardianship Unit at Legal Services for the Elderly, Disabled or Disadvantaged of Western New York, Inc., where she handles Article 81 Guardianship matters and health related issues. The agency presently serves as the guardian for approximately 100 individuals. In most of these court appointments, the agency is responsible for personal and property decision-making for these clients. Helen handles legal issues surrounding the guardianship cases. In addition, she handles Medicaid, Social Security and other elder issues. She was named Lawyer of the Year by the Erie County Bar Association in 2013 and has served on the NGA Board since 2011.
