Member National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers 


Guardianship services are needed when no other viable alternatives are available for a person who has become incapable of managing his or her own financial and/or personal affairs. Establishing a guardianship is a legal process and is determined by the courts. Although medical evidence is usually used in determining incapacity, it is important to remember that incapacity is a legal term, not a medical definition.

Many factors, including mental and physical health, personal environment, and financial status can impact an individual's capacity. When needed an emergency temporary guardian is appointed by the court until a decision is made whether or not an individual needs a guardian of the person and/or property.

Services may include:

  • Residential placement appropriate to needs

  • Ongoing visitation and monitoring of care

  • Coordination of medical, psychiatric, and rehabilitative services

  • Consent for medical treatment

  • Application for benefits on the person's behalf

  • Prudent financial management

All guardians are accountable to the local court and must get prior approval for many decisions and provide an annual written report of actions taken and services provided.
