APSI may be appointed by the probate court to serve as guardian of the person only after a person has been found incompetent based on a comprehensive evaluation and an assessment of the person’s capacity to make decisions.
A competent adult who is physically infirm may petition the probate court to place, for a definite or indefinite period of time, his person or all of his real or personal property, or both under a conservatorship with the court. APSI may serve as the conservator of the person only.
A trustee is appointed by the probate court to manage and account for all income and assets of a person without a judicial determination of incompetence and for amounts of less than ten thousand dollars.
A protectorship is an agreement entered into with an individual with a developmental disability that allows APSI to help advocate on his or her behalf. The court may or may not be involved and there is no need to find the individual incompetent to make decisions.
APSI is available to serve as a resource to individuals with a developmental disability. We are available to answer questions about guardianship and to link individuals to other services that will help meet their needs.
