ABLE2 is offering a series of virtual workshops to help families create a safe and secure future for a loved one with a disability.
The workshops are based on the Safe & Secure book. Each chapter is tackled over seven workshops. Families are recommended to take all seven workshops, however, we know that sometimes this is not possible so we are allowing families to register for each session as it is offered.
It is suggested that all workshop attendees have their own copy of the Safe & Secure book. We have copies of the new edition available for purchase, prior to the workshops, for $20:00. We also have a limited supply of the older version available for $5:00. To purchase a book please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 613-761-9522 ext. 221.
Making Sound Decisions
In this session you will look at the ways in which you and your family member can create your own balance between safety and choice. The concept of supported decision-making will be introduced, and you will also learn about the types of powers of attorney available to you.
