Understanding the Signs of Diminishing Mental Capacity
Although many people think of guardianship as only having to do with children, a guardianship can be established for any individual who cannot care for themselves, such as someone with disabilities. Unfortunately, many people are not aware of how guardianship works or when the best time to establish one is. Our Fairfield County guardianship attorneys have 70 years of combined experience and can provide you with the legal counsel you deserve.
As your family members get older and begin to change their routines and behavior, it's a good idea to keep an eye on them. If their mental capacity is diminished and they aren't making smart decisions for themselves, it may be time to contact a lawyer.
A few signs that your loved one may need a guardianship established include:
- Mishandling finances, especially if significant amounts of money are involved
- Exhibiting signs of paranoia
- Halting participation in previously enjoyable activities
- Becoming friends with anyone who may take advantage of them
