When does someone have the mental capacity to make their own decisions? What authority is granted, and not granted, through a “power of attorney?”
Doris Gelbman, an elder law attorney here in Charlottesville, Virginia, answers these questions in this video. She also tells “stories from the trenches” to help you grasp the implications of mental capacity and surrogate decision making in differing circumstances.
Through this video you’ll also see Doris as a human being who loves the work she has chosen. She’s the real deal, bringing both her head and her heart to her work. We’re lucky to have her serving our community!
