There are some situations where due to the effects of aging, disease, or injury, people need help managing some of or all of their daily affairs.

Guardianship provides a way to offer that support needed.  Guardianship is established by a court of law between the person who needs help (also referred to as a “ward”) and the person or entity (also referred to as a “guardian”) named by the court to help the individual under guardianship. 

This training module is designed to provide new guardianship staff with an introduction and broad overview of the Kentucky Guardianship Program.
