Mission Statement

Indiana Guardianship Services, Inc. aims to prevent abuse, neglect, and exploitation of incapacitated adults through quality, person-centered advocacy, and guardianship services. We strive to provide conscious and compassionate guardianship services to vulnerable adults regardless of financial situation. Our vision is for a community where the basic human needs of the elderly and disabled are recognized, their wishes are acknowledged, and advocacy occurs with dignity and fairness.

Description

Indiana is one of only a few states without a state-supported public system of providing adult guardianship services. Because of this, incapacitated persons without financial means or personal support from suitable relatives remain vulnerable to harm from financial exploitation, medical neglect, physical abuse, and emotional abuse. A guardianship can protect incapacitated individuals from financial exploitation and provide for the safety and well being of the individual by monitoring finances, health care, and living environment. A guardian is able to make financial and health care decisions, and advocate for the wishes and best interests of the individual. ‚Äč

Thanks to the tireless efforts of fiduciary professionals throughout the state of Indiana, grant money is available at the state level to provide this vital service. Indiana Guardianship Services, Inc., (IGS) is a newly incorporated agency dedicated entirely to providing guardianship services to incapacitated adults within participating jurisdictions. IGS exists to provide these services regardless of an individual’s financial situation or ability to pay. We are dedicated to providing clients with the same compassion, attention, and patience as our own family.
