A guardianship proceeding may be commenced by any interested party including but not limited to a family member, healthcare facility, landlord, neighbor, friend or any party concerned with the welfare of another.
If a guardianship proceeding is necessary, a Guardian can be authorized to make healthcare decisions on behalf of an incapacitated person and can be given the power to manage and/or transfer assets owned by an incapacitated person. A Guardian’s powers are tailored to be the “least restrictive form of intervention.”
