Adult guardianship is a legal procedure in which a court determines that a person is incapable of making decisions because of severe disabilities, and that the person is in need of protection. The person may be too mentally confused or forgetful to make decisions about medical treatment or to obtain appropriate food and shelter.
This condition is called “disability”. If the court finds a person to be unable to make decisions due to a disability, it will appoint someone to act on behalf of the disabled person, making decisions about the individual’s person, property or both.
