The Community Guardianship Program works to ensure the health and safety of people who are incapacitated and unable to manage aspects of daily living requirements. Appointed by the Court, EAC staff and volunteers serve as advocates and surrogate decision-makers for those individuals appointed to EAC care.
Thorough assessment, comprehensive service planning, regular visits, ongoing support and reporting to the Court ensures that the needs of the incapacitated person are met. Guardianship responsibilities can include a wide range of duties, including property management, assistance with personal needs, and advocacy with medical and social service providers. EAC Guardians are sensitive to the needs and wishes of their wards, and responsible stewards of their property.
