Setting Up Of Guardianships

Even with the number of estate planning options available, unforeseen circumstances arise making it impossible for us to make certain decisions for ourselves. The Massachusetts' courts provide options for others to make certain decisions for us when we no longer can make those decisions for ourselves.

In some instances, it's necessary to create limited guardianships where another trusted individual makes certain specific decisions for us. In the event of incapacity, appointment of guardianship provides authority to make major medical or financial decisions.

The service Janis Stanziani provides first involves determining whether a guardianship is necessary. She will review the elder person's entire circumstances and provide advice regarding the best approach.
