The Professional Guardianship Solution
It is important to note that professional guardianship should always be the choice of last resort. However, when it is the right solution, it offers a productive tool to protect those most vulnerable in our society.
A professional guardian will consider the wishes and desires of family, friends and loved ones while making decisions in the best interest of the person who has been adjudicated incapacitated. Professional guardianship may be in the form of guardian of person, property, or both.
Guardianship of the PersonWhen the court appoints a guardian of the person, the guardian may have the following responsibilities:
- Determine and monitor residence.
- Consent to and monitor medical treatment.
- Consent and monitor non-medical services such as education, social activities and counseling and possible restoration of capacity where possible.
- Make end-of-life decisions with court approval.
- Maximize independence in least restrictive manner.
- Report to the court about the guardianship status annually.

- Marshall and protect assets, inventorying assets.
- Obtain appraisals of property, to determine their value when necessary.
- Protect property and assets from loss.
- Receive and preserve income for the estate.
- Make appropriate disbursements on behalf of the ward.
Service Recipient Says
Honestly, if you work in healthcare and have a resident who needs a guardian I have the most amazing person, Homer Hartage. Never, EVER have I seen such love and devotion to a client in my life... it takes a lot to impress me because I have such high standards... my mind is blown. Please let him know if you should have a need for a guardian. Your client / resident truly could not be in better hands. He's simply amazing. So refreshing to see a guardian treat their client like a loved one instead of a paycheck or commodity.... I've never seen anything like it in my life... and I've been doing this a minute.Robyn Edelstein

When Is Guardianship The Right Choice
In uncertain times like these the Senators comments ring true “In the minds of us all as we age and ponder a future time when we too may need a caring hand. Should you have to make the difficult decision for yourself, a love one or a friend because they have been judged to lack the capacity or unable to manage their own affairs due to mental or physical incapacity that could be the moment you consider a guardian.” Gordon H. Smith
