Finding out about guardianship in Utah

August 30, 2011 by cpehrson

At some point, parents of children with significant developmental disabilities will have to face the issue of guardianship for their child.

When a child turns 18 years of age, the decision-making about the child’s educational services and health care goes to the child, rather than the parent.  In some cases, the child would not be able to make these decisions and the issue of guardianship must be addressed.

The Guardianship Associates of Utah is offering a free presentation about the process of becoming a guardian, designed for parents, families, and professionals working with  families.  The training will be presented on Wednesday, September 14, 2011 at the Logan City Library, in the Bonneville Room, at 6:30 p.m.

This is a two-part training-the first part explaining guardianship, what it entails, and who needs a guardian; the second part explaining how to become a guardian, how to keep the costs down, and a discussion about creating a special needs trust fund.

This training is sponsored by the Aspen Grove Advocacy, LLC group.
