Volunteer Guardian Program
It is often assumed that everyone has someone who will take care of them when they are unable to care for themselves. The fact is, not everyone has someone willing to be responsible for decision making. People served by this program are over 18 years of age, living in nursing homes or other group-care settings, and have some type of mental impairment. Whatever the reason, their ability to process information and conduct their affairs has deteriorated, they are alone, and they need your help.
Volunteer guardians serve individuals who have no family or friends able or willing to assist them. Volunteer guardians do not have financial responsibility for the person, must be at least 21 years old, have reliable transportation, references, attend an interview, undergo a background check and complete training.
