Guardianship of the Person

There are generally two types of guardianship that can be granted to individuals – guardianship of the person and guardianship of the property. Guardianship of the person allows for a family or court-appointed individual to take charge of an elderly person’s needs, including medical and residential decisions. Unlike guardianship of the property, guardianship of a person does not require the guardian to handle financial issues.

The following responsibilities may fall on a guardian of the elderly person:

  • Where the elderly individual may be residing
  • Following through with end-of-life wishes and planning
  • Medical treatment
  • Decisions on education

Guardianship of the Property

Establishing guardianship of the property will allow the assigned individual to make financial decisions, including:

  • Paying bills on time
  • Managing any income
  • Overseeing appraisals and distribution of assets in a will or trust
