Guardianship and Alternatives


For any child who has special healthcare needs, guardianship is an important issue. At age 18, individuals are their own guardians, regardless of their mental or physical ability to assess and make decisions that affect their own financial and healthcare needs. If a disability interferes with the ability to make decisions, the caregiver may need to obtain guardianship.
