Practitioner's Guide to Adult Guardianship  

diagonal image

This guide is intended to assist legal practitioners, social workers, medical practitioners, and the families of persons with disability. Assessing the need for adult guardianship and creating successful guardian­ship estates are difficult tasks. We have prepared these materials in an effort to assist those who must confront the need for adult guardianship.  We stress that adult guardianship should be con­sidered as a last resort, only after all other alternatives have been exhausted.
