How do I know if my loved one needs a Guardianship?
Guardianship is a court process that is designed to protect and care for individuals who are unable to care for themselves. If you suspect that a loved one is unable to care for some or all of his/her basic needs, a guardianship may be needed. A guardianship should definitely be a consideration when the alleged disabled individual has become a danger to him/herself or others due to a lack of mental capacity.
