Guardianship should be considered when a family member or loved one lacks the ability to think clearly, and is unable to make rational, clear-headed decisions about their health care, finances or other aspects of life.
There are several instances when Guardianship should be seriously considered:
- Children with elderly parents who do not have a Power of Attorney (POA) or Advanced Directive/Living Will;
- Parents with special needs children reaching adulthood; and
- Family members with elderly relatives who do not have a Power of Attorney or Advanced Directive/Living Will.
Guardianship give you the authority to assure your loved ones are living safely with dignity, free from financial exploitation, and receiving all necessary medical and long-term care.
