Guardianship is not a commonly touched-upon legal subject. Often times, people are faced in urgent situations where guardianship is their only option in ensuring that their loved ones ' personal and financial needs are handled with care.
If an adult has become incapacitated through injury or illness – or if they have had a lifelong debilitation – they will require an adult guardian. Typically, this person will be in charge of daily needs and medical care of the individual. This could include taking them around from place to place, or it could mean frequent visits to their home to ensure they are healthy. Often times, the court will grant legal power for the adult guardian to act on behalf of their ward – the person they are caring for – as long as they are fulfilling their duties.
