A routine visit...
The VGP trains & matches volunteers to become the legally appointed "Guardian of the Person Only" or substitute decision-maker for individuals with no money, or family support, and whose ability to make personal & medical decisions has diminished.
Those served usually live in a nursing home, group home, or other protected setting.
It is the volunteer's goal to enhance the quality of life for the person they serve by advocating for the best possible daily & medical care.
Someone needs you.....because not everyone has someone.
The VGP also serves Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, & Franklin Counties.
