When an adult becomes mentally incapacitated, our leadership is invaluable. During such time, a Guardianship should be established to maintain a certain standard of living for the adult. The legally appointed guardian would assume all responsibilities similar to that of a parent.
Furthermore, there is often a need to establish a Conservatorship and appoint someone capable of making financial decisions to preserve assets, financial distribution, and realm of asset management.
In both situations, legal documentation must be established to protect the adult and define the terms of agreement for all parties involved.
