Our Services

Professional Guardianship

  • Guardianship is a legal process utilized when a person can no longer make or communicate safe or sound decisions about his/her person or has become susceptible to fraud or undue influence.
  • The professional guardian does not take the place of a family member, although the guardian may form an emotional bond with the person under guardianship (National Guardianship Association, 2015). 
  • The SCR Foundation will monitor and coordinate professional services needed by the vulnerable person.These coordinated and monitored services include,  residential  in- home care, home health and hospice agencies, medical visits, homemaking and personal care service, transportation, social engagements, family involvement, education ventures, job opportunities. It is the role of the Professional Guardian to assist with all tasks related to the  physical wellness of the vulnerable person. The financial wellness of the vulnerable person is performed by the Conservator. Please see below for SCR Foundation's services as Conservator. 
  •  The SCR Foundation provides the coordination of the client’s life plan which is referred to as the" Guardian Scope of Practice." The Guardian Scope of Practice incorporate the client's needs and desires, ensuring the least restrictive process for the client while providing support and opportunities for the highest quality of life. A 30 -day  plan of care is required to be submitted to the Court and an Annual Report. The 30-Day plan of care is a court requirement to convey the current status and the intent of care for the protected person by the Guardian. The Annual Report must be submitted each year describing the care tasks, healthcare decisions, residential changes, change in condition  and  medical status during that year. 
  • **** Guardianship may refer to appointment of the person and their estate in some states; However, some states appoint these roles as separate appointments but one person/entity can be appointed as both Guardian and Conservatorship.

Conservatorship

  • Conservatorship is a legal process where an individual or entity is appointed by the Court to manage the financial affairs of a person who can no longer make or communicate safe or sound decisions about his/her person or has become susceptible to fraud or undue influence.
  • Funds and assets that belong to the person under Conservator-ship remain the property of that person. All funds are accounted for and kept separate from the Conservator's personal funds and funds of other clients.
  • A Professional Conservator is an advocate and acts on behalf of the incapacitated person only to the extent of the Court Order (NGA, 2015) For each person that a Professional Conservator serves, the Conservator will provide an accurate accounting of the client's funds and assets to the Court.
  • While the SCR Foundation respects the vulnerable person 's desires in how they wish to utilize their finances, it is the Professional Conservator's role to ensure the client's basic needs for shelter, food and safety are met first.
