Lisa Feldstein Law Office PC is a health law firm in Ontario, Canada that help family caregivers protect their families.
We serve clients 1:1 and, frankly, it's not enough. It's difficult to have the level of impact we want. It's hard to help people who cannot afford a lawyer (being a caregiver can be expensive!). And sometimes people need legal information in 15 minute time-slots, or at three in the morning. We want to do better.
Cue Kinkeeper™: an online platform we've created where family caregivers can come and learn practical information about health law on their own schedule, for a fraction of the price of meeting a lawyer one-on-one.
Having a loved one with a serious mental illness can be stressful, overwhelming and exhausting. If your loved one stops taking their medication because they feel fine, a downward spiral begins. Families often wonder what their rights are in all of this. In this course we provide an overview of the key laws that come up for family caregivers whose loved one has a serious mental illness. The more you know, the better an advocate you can be.
When family caregivers hear about the Consent and Capacity Board, it is usually amidst chaos and stress. There is hardly anywhere to go to find information about what is going to happen next. The psychiatrist knows. The patients speaks with a rights advisor. But often no one fills in the family caregiver, even though they are the main pillar of support. This course levels the playing field.
This course is for you if you want to learn more about whether your loved one needs a guardian of property, and how you can go about becoming one. It takes you through the steps to become guardian of property. This course is also for you if the Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee (PGT) is currently acting as guardian of property for your loved one, and you would like to take over as guardian.
