Can anyone become my Guardian of the Person?

No. Someone who is paid to give you health care or residential, social, training, or support services, cannot become your Guardian unless:

  • they are your spouse, partner, relative, Guardian of Property, Attorney for Personal Care, or Attorney in a Continuing Power of Attorney for Property, or
  • the court decides that there is no other suitable person, such as a friend or relative, who is willing and able to act as your Guardian of the Person.
