This Week's Topics:

Special Speaker - Kelsey Lesco - Disability Law Colorado
Kelsey Lesco is a CSL member and attorney with Disability Law Colorado. She is very active with the public guardianship issue for older adults and will speak with us about that along with the topic of older adult guardianship in general - how the process works, who is involved in the process, what to expect as our population ages into a record number of 75+ Coloradans. She may also speak about the issue of abandonment and unlawful restraint.
