  • 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.

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.

    Guardian of the Person

    A guardian of the person is a guardian whose responsibilities are to care for a person’s physical and personal needs, such as residence decisions, monitor medical treatment, non-medical services such as education, social activities, coordination of care and services, aid with critical medical care and end-of-life decisions and to secure and manage benefits such as SSI, Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security Benefits. The court monitors guardians and are to provide these services in the least restrictive manner. The court decides which of these responsibilities are granted to the professional guardian.

    Guardian of Property

    When the court appoints a guardian of the estate or property, the guardian maybe assigned the responsibilities of overseeing personal property, tangible and intangible, and anything that may be the subject of ownership. This may include managing and protection of assets, protection of property and assets from loss, income management, management of bill payments, other disbursements, assist with court approved property sales and liquidation. The court monitors guardians and guardians are to provide these services in the least restrictive manner while preserving assets when possible. The court decides which of these responsibilities are granted to the professional guardian.

    Guardian Advocate

    Parents no longer have the legal authority to make decisions for their children after they turn 18 years of age. The court may appoint a Guardian Advocate. Guardian Advocacy is a process for family members, professional guardians, caregivers, or friends of individuals with a developmental disability to obtain the legal authority to act on their behalf if the person lacks the decision-making ability to do some, but not all, of the decision-making tasks necessary to care for his or her person or property. This is accomplished without having to declare the person with a developmental disability incapacitated. A person with a developmental disability must have an Intellectual Disability (IQ less than 70), Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Spina Bifida, Downs Syndrome, Phelan-McDermid syndrome, or Prader-Willi syndrome that manifested before the age of 18; and that constitutes a substantial handicap that can reasonably be expected to continue indefinitely.

    Volunteer Guardian

    The court can appoint a volunteer guardian without adjudication of incapacity. Volunteer guardians are appointed as guardian of the property of a person who, is mentally competent, but is incapable of the care, custody, and management of his or her estate by reason of age or physical infirmity and who has voluntarily petitioned for the appointment. Such guardianship petitions shall be accompanied by a certificate of a licensed physician specifying that he or she has examined the person and that the person is competent to understand the nature of the guardianship and his or her delegation of authority. A volunteer guardian may have all the duties of a guardian of property.

    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 

    What is Professional Guardianship

    Guardianship is the management of the affairs of someone who has been judged by the court to lack the capacity or self control to manage some or all of their rights concerning their person, property or both. Generally, guardianship is ordered by a court on behalf of someone who is called a ward of the court.

    Looking to Family First

    Your first option for guardianship should always be a spouse, family member or a close friend with the time and ability to serve as guardian. However when no such person is available or able to serve then and only then should you ask the courts to appoint a Professional Guardian.

    Qualified Professional Guardians Are Appointed By The Courts

    Courts appoints guardian to assumes the rights of the person (who they call a ward) to make decisions about many aspects of daily life of the person. A guardian is directed by ethics, state and federal statute, to make decisions in the best interest of the ward. Additionally guardians takes an oath to act in the best interest of the ward and are subject to penalty of law and imprisonment for proven misconduct.
