We support clients by providing qualified, vetted court appointed guardians, and oversight by a panel of guardianship experts.
We primarily serve older adults who require guardians, regardless of socio-economic status, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability and language.
Most of those we serve are suffering from disabilities or physical and mental diseases and lack the mental capacity to manage their own personal and financial affairs and have no willing or able family members or friends to serve in that capacity. Typically are clients fall into one of three categories of people including:
- Those who were competent at one time but due to the onset of a condition (for instance a dementia, stroke, organic brain disease) are no longer competent
- Those who were never competent to manage their own affairs (for instance a person born with a developmental disability such as downs syndrome or autism)
- Those suffering from a mental illness that renders them unable and unfit to manage their own affairs. We serve older adults who require guardianship regardless of socio-economic status, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability and language.
We truly are guardians of last resort.
Our agency sponsors workshops and lectures from renowned speakers on a range of topics relevant to guardianship and senior services. These workshops are open to the general public.
