Guardianship and Protective Placement Attorneys
If your loved one has become incapacitated or can no longer make decisions for themselves, and needs care that can only be provided in a nursing home, a protective placement and/or guardianship may be needed. As mentioned above, this may be avoided by nominating agents to make financial and medical decisions for you. As your lawyer, we can help by filing the legal paperwork, hiring an expert and obtaining the needed medical/psychological report, and appointing a guardian ad litem to represent the best interests of the incapacitated person.
