Guardianship Services

**** Please note that we have closed our building and suspended most services to support social distancing measures. We are working remotely and continue to respond to essential needs. Staff are monitoring their emails and voicemails daily.

 

 

Guardianship is when an adult no longer has the capacity to make his or her own decisions. A Guardian is appointed by the Court and has the legal responsibility to make personal decisions for another person.

 

Trusteeship is when an adult no longer has the capacity to make his or her own financial decisions any may be vulnerable. A Trustee is appointed by the court and has the legal authority to make financial decisions for them.

 

Sage’s Guardianship and Trusteeship program offers guidance to anyone looking at the process of Guardianship and Trusteeship. We can assist you with your application for joint Guardianship and Trusteeship, or individual Guardianship or Trusteeship. We are currently in the process of developing this program into a fee for service social enterprise model. If you would like more information, please contact us at 780-423-5510 ext. 404.
