Guardianship

A serious accident, chronic illness or dementia might make it impossible for a person to take care of his or her own personal security or financial affairs. Guardianship is the most common legal response, but it is an intrusive solution that might be resisted by the person most directly involved or by other family members.

A guardian is a person appointed by the court to supervise an incapacitated person's physical care ("the person") or financial affairs ("the estate"). In either situation, the court asked to appoint a guardian will usually consider less restrictive alternatives, such as a trust or power of attorney.
