Guardianship:

Guardianship is a legal process where the court can appoint a person to be a guardian to safeguard the rights of an incapacitated person and ensure that health care services are provided as needed. A limited guardianship is limits the guardian’s decision making authority to only those areas where the incapacitated person is unable to make effective decisions about his or her safety, health and well-being. The incapacitated person retains the authority to make his or her own decisions in all other areas.
