Learn what guardianship means for you and your family.
A guardianship is a legal tool that allows a person or entity to make healthcare, financial, or other decisions for someone who is unable to make decisions for himself or herself due to an illness, injury, or disability.
Examples include: someone who is in a coma, someone who is mentally disabled, someone who has Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia, someone who has had a stroke, or someone who has suffered a brain injury.
Being a guardian enables you to be absolutely sure your loved one is being well looked after. However, it's also a huge responsibility. As a guardian, you are an officer of the court, and you must give regular reports to the judge.
Being a guardian is also a long-term commitment. It lasts for the rest of the ward's life, unless the court appoints someone else to take your place. You do not want to take on this responsibility unless you are absolutely sure you can do the job.
