What are the duties of a guardian of the person?

The duties of a guardian of the person are included in the final Court Order appointing the guardian. However, the Pennsylvania guardianship statute provides for the following duties: (1) assertion of the rights and interests of the incapacitated person; (2) respect for the wishes and preferences of the incapacitated person to the greatest extent possible; (3) participation, where appropriate, in the development of a plan of supportive services to meet the person’s needs; and (4) encouragement of the incapacitated person to participate to the maximum extent of her abilities in all decisions that affect her, to act on her behalf when she is able to do so, and to develop or regain her capacity to manage her personal affairs to the maximum extent feasible.
