LifeSpan’s Guardianship program was the first of its kind in Butler County when it started in 1996; it has also expanded into Warren County and in both communities this program brings stability, safety and companionship to hundreds of area residents.

guardianshipCourt appointed guardians can have a dramatic impact on the quality of life of our community’s most vulnerable residents—elderly, mentally ill and developmentally disabled people who have no family member able or willing to look out for them.

In addition to the LifeSpan’s staff guardians, trained volunteer guardians play a critical role in the success of this program. Every year the need grows for more compassionate, committed volunteer guardians.

Both staff and volunteer guardians are appointed by the Probate Court to make decisions for their clients relating to health care, living arrangements, or safety issues. Clients are individuals who need assistance in decision making and advocacy based on limitations that impair their ability to make competent decisions. They typically live in nursing homes, group homes, and other supported living environments. Many times the guardian may be the only person who visits outside of medical professionals or caregivers.

If you would like to make a difference in someone’s life, please consider becoming a volunteer guardian. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old, undergo fingerprinting and police background checks, and attend orientation and ongoing training.
