About

A GUARDIAN IS A PERSON WHO HAS THE LEGAL RESPONSIBILITY TO ADVOCATE ON BEHALF OF AN INDIVIDUAL UNABLE TO CARE FOR HERSELF/HIMSELF. GUARDIANS MAKE DECISIONS REGARDING THE CARE AND WELFARE OF THEIR WARDS. THEY ARE COMPASSIONATE PEOPLE WHO CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF ANOTHER PERSON.

A GUARDIAN MUST COMPLETE AN APPLICATION, UNDERGO A CRIME INFORMATION BUREAU CHECK, AND HAVE POSITIVE REFERENCES. A GUARDIAN MUST PERSONALLY VISIT THE WARD AND MAINTAIN CLOSE CONTACT WITH THE WARD'S CAREGIVERS.

IF YOU FEEL A STRONG NEED TO GIVE BACK TO YOUR COMMUNITY, THIS IS A TERRIFIC OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO.
