Elder Law Explained: Guardianship

About This Episode

This is the second episode in a five-part series on Elder Law. In episode 10 we discussed the basic elements of estate planning and why it's important. If you missed that, be sure to double back and give it a listen because it was packed with a lot of great unnecessary information. In this episode we discussed guardianship. Planning ahead legally for the later years of life with an estate plan is ideal, but what happens when someone fails to get their affairs in order and becomes incapacitated due to advancing age and illness or a disability? Who decides who will make the decisions for the individual And what protections are in place to safeguard their well-being?

Here is what we discussed

  • What is Guardianship
  • Who can become a Guardian
  • Why would someone need a Guardian
  • Are Guardians certified and/or monitored
  • The process to establish a guardian
  • The pros and cons of Guardianship
