Description: The Public Guardian can be appointed as a person's guardian and, depending on the guardianship order, may make decisions on behalf of the person in areas such as accommodation; medical treatment; dental treatment or services. The Public Guardian is a substitute decision maker, not a substitute caregiver or case manager. A decision made by a legally appointed guardian should be treated as if it were a decision made by the person with disability. The Public Guardian will also advocate for the services and supports needed by the person under guardianship. The office of the Public Guardian also provides an Information and Support service for private guardians.
