Recruiting Organization: Guardian Partners
Guardians are appointed by the Court to make decisions on behalf of people who are unable to make those decisions for themselves. Most Guardians are caring and responsible individuals. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Guardian Partners was started with the goal of providing oversight to ensure that Protected Persons are being treated with the utmost dignity and respect. Volunteer Case Monitors are at the heart of this mission to keep vulnerable Oregonians safe and thriving. Case Monitors provide oversight of guardianship cases involving seniors and disabled adults.
** Currently, all monitoring will be done virtually to ensure the safety of Case Monitors, Guardians, and Protected Persons with the intention to offer in person visits when safe to do so. Some travel may be necessary.
Case Monitors are given training and ongoing support to be successful. Once assigned a case, the Case Monitor will coordinate and conduct video interviews with seniors and people with disabilities, their Guardians, and additional collateral contacts in order to corroborate information regarding quality of life. Once all interviews are completed, the Case Monitor will furnish a report to the Court, identifying any evidence of abuse or neglect as well as any recommendations.
- Typical cases require six to ten hours of time; commitment to monitoring at least 10 cases.
- Highly flexible--can be scheduled on your time, at your convenience.
- Operating in Clackamas, Douglas, Lane, Marion, Multnomah, Tillamook and Yamhill Counties.
- The difference you make in a Protected Person’s life can be profound!
