Guardianship is a legal option for people who want to be responsible for someone who may not be able to handle financial affairs or make informed medical decisions. To be a guardian means to assume responsibility for that person's care, administer financial affairs and make medical decisions. In order to do that, you may have to become the legal guardian of the “person” (medical) and “property” (financial), referred to in legalese as the “ward.”
