When a loved one begins exhibiting signs of incapacity, it can be difficult figuring out what to do and where to turn. You may discover that a guardianship is necessary to protect you and your loved one and help them manage their medical needs and financial affairs. This is often the case when a parent or spouse becomes ill and does not have a medical and statutory durable power of attorney. Sometimes you will anticipate the need for a guardianship once a particular medical diagnoses has been made by the treating physician, particularly if you are caring for a child who has been diagnosed with down syndrome, autism, or a combination of intellectual, emotional, and physical disabilities.
When caring for a loved one becomes overwhelming you may also find yourself having a hard time keeping up with and on schedule for filing the annual report and annual account.
