We all want to be able to take care of ourselves, but this isn’t always possible. Due to physical limitations or lack of mental capacities, some adults aren’t able to provide food, clothing, and shelter for themselves. Someone who is unable to physically care for themselves or manage their own financial assets often benefits from the oversight of a trusted family member. Guardianship can appoint someone to care for them and manage their life.
However, guardianship is extremely limiting for the ward, and it can sometimes even damage their health or mental abilities further. At the Hager Law Firm, our guardianship lawyers, led by Attorney Elizabeth Anderson, work hard to ensure both guardian and ward are protected and taken care of. If someone you love is incapable of taking care of themselves, Attorney Anderson can help you decide if guardianship is the right call.
