What are the duties of a Guardian in Illinois?

Serving as the Guardian for a disabled person is a complex and challenging job.  The Guardian has the duty to protect the disabled person's rights, and arrange for the ongoing care that the disabled person needs.  This includes making medical, housing, personal, and financial decisions for the disabled individual.


The Guardian provides this care and support for the disabled person with the guidance of an attorney and oversight from the local Illinois Guardianship Court.  This is done in part by the Guardian providing the Court with yearly accountings regarding the Guardianship finances and annual reports regarding the disabled person's health and well-being.
