A Letter from RDQ Barristers & Solicitors, LLP – Wills & Estates and Henson Trust

No one likes to make plans for an untimely death, no matter what age. But taking the time to put together a proper Will & Powers of Attorney is an essential part of sound financial planning.

The members and families of the Mississauga Association for Independent Living (M.A.I.L.) have a unique situation where the children in these families have a disability. Many families do not know about a specific clause to be included in a Will known as the Henson Trust. This type of trust is designed to benefit disabled persons; specifically it protects the assets (typically an inheritance) of the disabled person, as well as the right to collect government benefits and entitlements.

The lawyers and staff in RDQ’s Wills & Estates department are knowledgeable and equipped to answer any questions relating specifically to the Henson Trust. RDQ has supported the M.A.I.L. program since Bobby Chatterjee joined our firm in 2009, and we were thrilled to hear that he became a member of the Board of Directors in 2012.

Because of the partnership our firm has with M.A.I.L., we would like to offer a Will & Powers of Attorney for a couple with the Henson Trust clause included for $1050.00 plus HST, and for $700.00 plus HST for an individual person

As mentioned above, no one likes to make plans for death, however securing the future of your dependents specifically through the Henson Trust will ensure that your children will be taken care of.

A Letter from Dr. Greg Grillo with Dentably

Hi there,

I’m Dr. Greg Grillo with Dentably, a blog about dental care for patients with additional needs. After discovering Mississauga Association for Independent Living, I wanted to reach out regarding dental resources for patients with additional needs. 

One of my associates at our dental clinic told me a story about her nephew’s dental experience that was less than pleasant. He has autism and struggled with sensory issues while at his appointment. I started to do some research and found there’s not a lot of information out there on the subject of autism and dental care and I wanted to do something about it.

My team and I have created a thorough resource guide to help other families with special needs children, teens or even adults who have gone through rough experiences at a dental office. We have also included an option to print it to share with families, along with a printable guide of questions to ask your dentist before the appointment.

Although we are located in the US, we have created this as a thorough resource guide that is not country specific. It is a detailed guide for caregivers and family members of children or teens with autism.
