Family Guardianship

Family guardianships are no different than any other adult guardianship appointment. The need for a guardian in a family can be a matter of the birth of a child with an intellectual disability, an aging adult having medical issues such as stroke or the development of Alzheimer’s, or the diminished decisional capacity caused by a head injury and other unfortunate causes. The Guardian Manual found under Resources was prepared for family guardians and should be consulted.
