Do you know about the new deed in California? This is important.
First off, thank you to elder care attorney Carol Peters (contact information below) for the article from the CARHR Advocate newsletter. The goal of the California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform is improved care. I only included the top story, page 1, about the new TOD (Transfer on Deed) that became effective on January 1, 2016. I work with a lot of attorneys and sit in on numerous MCLE luncheon meetings with the Pasadena Bar Association. This has been discussed at 3 different law sections: Probate and Trusts, Family Law, and the Real Estate Section this year. There has not been enough media about this. Please read.
According to Carol Peters, this is an ‘Estate’ issue but relevant to the EOLA/End Of Life Act which is a “Person” issue. Legal/medical education is needed for attorneys to learn and understand the new landscape of these two new global changes, for the Estate/Person issues which are addressed and served by Conservatorship, the expensive Judicial remedy when in doubt about ‘the Patient’s Intent’ for Physicians and medical staff who are charged with “having the conversation”.
