Guardianships

Guardianship Basics


A guardian is a person appointed by a court to manage the affairs of a person who is incapacitated.

A guardian may be appointed to manage the financial affairs of a person at significant risk of harm because of a "demonstrated inability to adequately manage property or financial affairs." A guardian may be appointed to make health care and other non-financial decisions for a person at significant risk of harm because of a "demonstrated inability to adequately provide for nutrition, health, housing or physical safety."
