Alternatives to Full Guardianship, cont'd
The Alternatives to Guardianship chart shows the range of available alternatives from least restrictive all the way to full guardianship. These alternatives to full guardianship are categorized by the level of decision-making power that the person keeps and by the level of court involvement that’s needed to carry out the arrangement.
The Alternatives to Guardianship chart will help you think through the possible use of alternatives to guardianship. We’ll refer to it throughout this training/reference guide.
It’s worth the time to think through & understand what the alternatives to guardianship are because if you are able to select one or more, you will be helping to preserve some or all of the person’s basic decision-making rights.
