An adult can be decisionally incapable or become so, and as a consequence be unable to manage his/her personal care. This can come as a result of many affecting issues, including injury or disease. In the absence of an attorney for personal care, it may become prudent or necessary as a matter of last resort for a guardian of the person to be appointed. Sections 55 through 68, under Part II of the Substitute Decisions Act, 1992[1] (“SDA”) provide authority for the court to appoint guardians of the person for adults incapable of personal care.
