What is a Guardianship?
A guardianship is a legal mechanism by which one individual or entity (a guardian / conservator) is appointed by a court to exercise certain decision making functions on behalf of, and in the place of, an individual that is legally “incapacitated”. When a guardianship is established, the incapacitated person’s legal right to make certain decisions with respect to his or her personal and/or financial affairs is removed and responsibility for making such decisions is placed in the court-appointed guardian.
A person may become “incapacitated” because of:
- Severe Developmental Disability
- Acute, Serious Mental or Physical Illness
- Alzheimer’s Disease, Dementia and similar problems that can occur with old age
- Serious Illness or an Accident
- Alcoholism or Drug Abuse
There are circumstances in life that sometimes require the need to initiate a guardianship however, it is important to understand that many people who experience these problems are quite capable of making their own decisions and do not require a guardian.
