Every adult is assumed to be capable of making his or her own decisions unless a court determines otherwise. If an adult is incapable of making responsible decisions due to a cognitive disability, the court will appoint a substitute decision maker, often called a "guardian," but in some states called a "conservator" or other term. Guardianship is a legal relationship between a competent adult (the "guardian") and a person who because of incapacity is no longer able to take care of his or her own affairs (the "ward").
This session will introduce attendees to how guardianship or conservatorship is attained for an adult with cognitive disabilities.
