What is a Guardianship in Michigan?
If your loved one doesn’t have someone appointed to act on their behalf, a guardianship or conservatorship may be in order. If your loved one is no longer capable of taking care of themselves, a guardian should be appointed to manage their care.
A guardianship is the appointment of an entity to handle the care of a vulnerable or incapacitated person. Guardians are responsible for managing their financial affairs, caring for their physical health, and managing their healthcare needs. Examples of some responsibilities of a guardian include providing them with food, shelter, and clothing. A guardian must heavily consider the wants and needs of their ward while they are in their care.
Dealing with the affairs of an incapacitated loved one can be extremely tough. Nobody should have to suffer through it alone. At Casterline Law, we can help you through the process of getting a guardian appointed to your loved one to ensure that their wishes and needs are met.
