Adult guardianship is a court action in which an individual asks the court to grant him or her authority to handle the medical and/or financial affairs of someone who is (or has become) unable to handle such matters for himself or herself. This typically arises when the disabled person has not executed a Power of Attorney or an Advance Directive which would have enabled a trusted relative or friend to act on his or her behalf in the event of disability. The process can be complicated, emotionally charged, and challenging for families. There are often serious health care issues as well as property management issues and issues with Medicare and/or Medicaid. Families need good, solid advice and guidance in navigating the complex process.
