When a person is considered “incapable”, which is a legal concept, of making decisions for himself or herself, another person(s) who cares about the incapable person can apply to the court to be appointed as a guardian. The Court needs to be assured that the applicant will make decisions in a responsible and trustworthy manner with the best interests of the incapable person as the guiding principle.
An incapable person is generally an adult person who could be a relative or friend with dementia, intellectual disabilities or other special needs.
A guardian under the Substitute Decisions Act, 1992 has numerous responsibilities and duties.
