A guardianship is a formal, legal process where a court appoints and monitors someone, called a Guardian, to make decisions for a person, called a ward, who does not have the capacity to make decisions. When a person is unable to provide food, clothing, or shelter, or to care for his or her own physical health, and to manage his or her own financial affairs due to a mental or physical condition, he or she may be found to be without capacity, or “incapacitated.” The purpose of guardianship is to protect persons from abuse, neglect, including self-neglect, and exploitation, and to provide for their care and the appropriate management of their property.
