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 (“SDA”) provide authority for the court to appoint guardians of the person for adults incapable of personal care.
