Online Webinar: Four Legal Documents You Need to Avoid Guardianship

Kentucky ElderLaw is proud to present an hour-long webinar that will answer your questions as to what you, or a loved-one, need to avoid guardianship.

What Is Guardianship?
Guardianship means obtaining the legal authority to make decisions for another person. A “guardian” is the person appointed by the court to make decisions on behalf of someone else. The person over whom the guardianship is granted (the child or the adult) is referred to as the “protected person.”

Why Do I Want To Avoid Guardianship?
The primary reason to avoid guardianship is so YOU can choose who makes decisions for you in the event of your incapacity. These are decisions like healthcare, finances, and living arrangements. The court does its best to appoint a guardian who will act in the ward’s best interest. However, most people prefer to choose who that person is, instead of letting a court decide.
