a person who has become incapable of managing his or her own financial
and/or personal affairs. Establishing a guardianship is a legal process
and is determined by the courts. Although medical evidence is usually
used in determining incapacity, it is important to remember that incapacity is a legal term, not a medical definition.
Many factors, including
mental and physical health, personal environment, and financial status
can impact an individual's capacity. When needed an emergency temporary
guardian is appointed by the court until a decision is made whether or
not an individual needs a guardian of the person and/or property.

and services provided.
