Guardianship provides important options to families

In Pennsylvania, guardianships are important legal options for family members concerned about the welfare of a child who is turning 18 but may be disabled or has special needs as well as for family members concerned about an elderly adult who may be suffering from dementia. Guardianships for loved ones can help concerned family members care for their loved ones and make financial and medical decisions when needed.

Proposed law changes could improve tools in special needs plans

For those with family members who have special needs, ensuring that there are adequate resources for the care of their loved one takes research and planning. This entails not only looking into and pursuing the government programs and benefits available to support that family member, particularly as he or she moves into adulthood, but also setting aside funds to provide for that family member's care.

Providing For A Disabled Child

For any parent, providing for the basic and higher needs of a child is a top priority. As a child grows, a parent's list of concerns typically evolves from worrying about and providing for a child's basic needs and physical safety to ensuring that a son or daughter obtains an education and the skills needed to find a job and live on his or her own. However, parents who have a child with a physical, mental, or developmental disability may need to protect and provide for a child well past his or her eighteenth birthday.
