Elder Law Today Show #16 Mom is Not Capable of Handling Her Affairs - When is a Guardianship Appropriate
Mom is unable to handle her affairs and either can’t or won’t accept assistance from other family members. Or maybe one child lives close by and is taking advantage of mom and other family members, who live a distance away, are frustrated in their attempts to protect mom. Is guardianship a solution?
In Show 16 of his monthly elder law podcast, Yale Hauptman, a practicing elder law attorney discusses when a guardianship is possible and when it isn’t. Does Mom need to be declared incompetent? How does that happen and what is the standard? Yale also discuss what options are available when a guardianship isn’t possible, such as a conservatorship.
If your family is grappling with these issues or you know someone else who is, then you’ll want to tune in to learn more.Click here to listen
