LifeSpan's Guardianship Program protects those who cannot protect themselves. Sometimes, people in our community are at risk due to limitations that impair their ability to make competent choices. In these cases, the Probate Court will step in and appoint a Guardian. If a LifeSpan Guardian is appointed, that Guardian is legally authorized to make all decisions on behalf of their client. Guardians are often the only spokesperson for this very vulnerable population. In many cases, the Guardian is the only person who visits or takes interest in that person outside of healthcare professionals.
Our Guardianship program is very unique. Very few counties in the State of Ohio have local non-profits providing this type of service to their residents. Other guardians serve larger areas, have much larger caseloads, and are often not familiar with the local resources available.
Help us keep this unique program strong. Your contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more will help us maintain this important program. Everyone deserves and needs an advocate. Make your donation NOW by visiting our Donate page.
