GUARDIANSHIP: HOW TO HELP THOSE WHO CANNOT HELP THEMSELVES
One of the most difficult situations you may ever face could be dealing with the incapacity of a loved one whose decision making could be putting them or someone else in danger. A diagnosis of a progressive disorder like Alzheimer’s disease and dementia does not mean that capacity is automatically lost; however, over time, that person’s ability to reason, make rational decisions or care for themselves can be greatly diminished. Unfortunately, there a number of seniors who are becoming unable to provide or care for themselves due to either physical or mental incapacity. Guardianship is a legal process that can be used to help that senior who really needs someone to look after their affairs and protect their well-being.
