How to protect an incapable loved one
Has a loved one approached you with the “big question”: whether you’d protect them if they one day became incapable? This wouldn’t be surprising since a survey found that 9 in 10 Québecers would want a family member, spouse or friend to make decisions for them if they became incapable. Did you also know that the same number of Québecers say they would accept the responsibility? If ever you’re asked, say yes!
