Customized Caring specializes in providing professional power of attorney and guardianship services for disabled and aging adults.
A Power of Attorney is someone you appoint to serve as your representative during times when you cannot (usually due to hospitalization, disability, extended absence, etc.). This person has legal authority and responsibility for whatever matters you designate and authorize (ie. financial matters, health care decisions, etc.)
A legal guardian is someone who has the legal authority and responsibility to care for the personal and financial aspects of another person (the "Ward"). Usually a legal guardian is put in place because the Ward is incapable of caring for his or her own interests due to infancy, incapacity or disability. Courts generally appoint a guardian for an individual in need of this special protection.
Customized Caring serves as a power of attorney in the following ways:
Financial matters - to the extent authorized, manages, makes decisions and handles administrative matters regarding financial issues and property for an individual.
Healthcare - to the extent authorized, manages and makes decisions regarding the healthcare and services provided to an individual.
Customized Caring serves as a legal guardian in the following ways:
Guardianship of the Person - makes decisions about the person, programs, medical care, residence, and release of confidential information of the Ward.
Guardianship of the Estate - manages, and makes decisions about financial matters, benefits, real estate and other property owned by the Ward.
Plenary Guardianship - responsible for both the person and the estate.
