Guardianship in the Time of COVID-19: FAQ for Guardians and Others

HNWElder Care Law, Guardianship Law


I received this email today and thought it would be an excellent post on our website for everyone who is serving as a guardian to an adult or minor person.  Having read and reviewed the post in detail, I highly recommend it to everyone with an interest in the topic.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, guardians for older adults and adults with disabilities may have questions about fulfilling their duties and staying connected to people they represent. Guardianship experts, including the National Guardianship Association, ABA Commission on Law and Aging, and the National Center for State Courts, have created a FAQ document with answers, actionable tips, and links to key resources. This resource is aimed at family guardians, professional guardians, public guardians, attorneys, judges, court personnel, and all others who are affected by this issue, and will be regularly updated with new information and links.

Topics addressed by the FAQ sheet include:

  • Access to clients or loved ones in nursing homes
  • Access to clients or loved ones in residential group settings and hospitals
  • Access to courts
  • Protecting clients’ or loved ones’ rights & well-being
