Your loved one may need a guardian if he or she does not have comprehensive powers of attorney and is found incompetent because of a functional impairment in decision making or communication. There are two types of guardians. Guardians of the estate make some or all decisions about a person's money and property. Guardians of the person make some or all personal decisions, such as health care decisions and where to live. Guardians have a duty to act in the person's best interests. A guardian's decisions are subject to court review and supervision.
