No One is Alone

Volunteer Guardians...

  • Visit at least monthly (often more frequently), many developing a valued connection to their incapacitated person (IP)
  • Use substituted judgement to secure care and provide opportunity for activities and enrichment
  • Ensure a safe, suitable living arrangement in the least restrictive environment possible.
  • Arrange for needed support services and monitor the quality of the services.
  • Assess health needs and arrange and authorize medical treatment.
  • Manage personal property and income and utilize funds to ensure necessary support and care.
  • If/when the time comes, ensure the IP is laid to rest in a compassionate and dignified manner that is compatible with their wishes.
