Guardianship & Incapacity
Families often struggle with challenges that arise related to diminished mental and physical capacity. If your loved one can no longer make appropriate decisions regarding their finances or personal and medical care, it may be necessary for a court to appoint a guardian for them. The guardian of the property is responsible for management and use of the assets of the incapacitated person. The guardian of the person is responsible for their personal care and well-being. Guardians for the person and property may be the same person or different people.
