Understanding Guardianship

Guardianship is a legal arrangement wherein a court appoints an individual (the guardian) to make decisions and manage the affairs of another person (the ward) who is unable to do so themselves due to minority, incapacity, or disability. The scope of a guardian's responsibilities can vary widely but typically includes managing financial affairs, making medical decisions, and ensuring the general welfare of the ward.
