In Washington state, a legal document called a Power of Attorney (POA) can authorize another person to make decisions on your behalf. In this workshop, learn about Washington’s Durable Power of Attorney for Finances and Durable Power of Attorney Health Care. We will discuss the law that governs them and the practical issues to be aware of when creating or revoking them. You will also have access to forms that you can use to draft your own Durable Power of Attorney for Finances and Durable Power of Attorney Health Care.
The Library brings people, information and ideas together to enrich lives and build community. We support universal access to information and ideas, and form strong partnerships with local organizations to offer classes and workshops that are accessible to all.
