What is a Guardian?
The Guardian Assistance Network helps families or friends who have been appointed by the court under Article 81 of the New York State Mental Hygiene Law to serve as guardians. GAN offers support, practical advice and training in carrying out guardianship responsibilities.
A guardian is an adult who is selected by a judge to make decisions for another person who needs help managing finances and making personal care decisions. Guardians are usually appointed to care for adults but parents or family members of a severely disabled child may be appointed as guardian to care for that child.
