A Guardian manages the living situation, health care, education, etc. for people who cannot do care for themselves. Examples of situations when a guardian is needed are the following:
• Disabled adult – such as Down's Syndrome, mental illness or other disability. For people 18 years or older, their parents are not legally authorized to make decisions for them. A court-appointed a guardian will have that authority.
• Elderly– Some elderly people are unable to manage their own living situation and health care such as those with dementia or severe health conditions.
• Disabled minors or adults – if they win a personal injury case or receive government benefits.
• Elderly – if they cannot manage their own funds due to dementia or other health conditions.
