Emergency Measures and the Impact on Older Adults and People with Disabilities 

22 avr. 2020

OBA Elder Law / Constitutional, Civil Liberties and Human Rights Law PROGRAM
11:00 AM to 12:00 PM

The issues facing older adults and people with disabilities during the current pandemic are numerous, complex and rapidly changing. Whether your clients include older adults or people with disabilities, their families, service providers or health care workers, join us to explore the challenges and gather practical advice on how to navigate these unprecedented waters, including:

  • What are the impacts of emergency measures on residents of long-term care and retirements homes?
  • Critical human rights issues arising from clinical triage policies
  • How “reasonable” are the measures being used to limit movement, and what are the constitutional implications?
  • Consent to treatment/withdrawal of life support and other “end of life” treatment wishes
  • What is considered “essential services”, and what that means for older adults and people with disabilities?
