The Guardianship of the Person is someone appointed to make personal, medical, and welfare decisions for a Ward*.
This includes but is not limited to providing care, supervision, food, clothing, medical treatment and shelter for their ward.
Wards in these types of proceedings are commonly identified as:
– Elderly individuals of whom are unable to make their own financial/healthcare decision
– Minors of whom have received an inheritance/gift in their name
– Disabled minor who has reached legal age but cannot assume responsibilities for their own financial/healthcare and/or legal affairs.
