It could be a car accident. It could be a simple slip and fall. It could be a short errand during which your ailing loved one gets lost and cannot get home. Whenever the phone rings, your stomach clenches with the dread of the caller reporting your parent or grandparent has been injured and needs medical care. In declining capacity, the elderly may refuse the treatment they need or reject assistance that would help to preserve their best interests. A guardianship can take the worry out of the phone ringing and provide you with peace of mind.

There when you need us
Your loved one’s health can quickly worsen and decrease his or her mental faculties with little notice. That is why it is imperative to enact a guardianship while the ward is still of sound mind. Louisville lawyer Bruce Brightwell understands the urgent need for legal action and can visit you and your loved one in the hospital or at home to sign the guardianship document into effect immediately, providing relief for all parties concerned.
What a guardianship means for you and your loved one
Given the great responsibility, New Albany, Jeffersonville, and Louisville guardianship clients must be certain of their duties. As a guardian, you first determine where your loved one will live. Then you decide upon and arrange for medical treatment and rehabilitation services. Similarly, in a conservatorship, the appointed conservator takes authority over the ward’s financial decisions. Your ward depends on you for quality of life decisions, so he or she must trust you completely.
