When elderly people reach the stage where they are no longer able to make decisions or care for themselves, it may be appropriate for a person to be appointed guardianship. Guardians can be appointed as a guardian of the person to attend to issues related to the incapacitated person’s health and well-being. A guardian of the estate can also be appointed to handle financial matters. The guardian of the person and the guardian of the estate may be the same person, but it is not required.
The guardianship process involved with becoming a guardian and properly fulfilling one’s responsibilities can be quite complex. If you have questions about becoming the guardian for an elderly person, it can be beneficial to talk to an El Paso lawyer with guardianship experience who can help you understand how it works and what your responsibilities will be if you are appointed as a guardian.
