Comments I study the adult guardianship system. Adult guardians are persons authorized to protect adults with insufficient judgment ability because of issues such as intellectual/mental disability or dementia following old age. Someone suitable to act as an adult guardian will be appointed by a family court.
A debate is ongoing as to whether adult guardians should be able to make medical decisions on behalf of persons who have lost the capacity for judgement. If the right of determination were to be given to an adult guardian, it would become necessary to take measures to prevent the abuse of this right, such as by requesting permission from a family court for serious medical actions.
