Make the Right Decisions Regarding Guardianship

When an adult can no longer make or communicate decisions regarding everyday care, healthcare, and safety, it may be necessary to assign a court-appointed guardian to make these decisions. Guardianship can offer various benefits, making sure that a person’s care is entrusted to the right individual and that this individual’s authority is limited to the areas in which the person is disabled or unable to make viable decisions.

Making the decision to pursue guardianship is not easy. With experience as a nurse and an attorney, Christine Tennyson can educate you on your rights and options. She can offer insight regarding the advantages and disadvantages of guardianship and how it will affect your family and your unique situation. After all, no two people or families are the same. We want to help you make the right choice for your loved one.
