There may be times where Guardianship is the best option for your loved one. In Michigan, Guardianship allows a judge to appoint someone to make decisions for someone that needs help. The judge can decide what decisions the guardian can make. Examples are: Where the individual should live, what medical care is needed and finances. The judge can decide if a Full or Limited Guardianship is needed.
