What is Adult Guardianship?
What does guardianship of an elderly parent mean? In simple terms, guardianship means that a family caregiver who accepts guardianship for an elderly parent agrees to a higher level of responsibility. This responsibility includes making good medical and daily care decisions for an elderly parent.
A difficult decision may be made to appoint professional guardians instead of a family guardian because of family conflict and disagreements. The emotional stress of family battles causes permanent damage to relationships with elderly parents. Family disagreements are also counterproductive to the care of an elderly parent. – Text referenced from here.
