What are the duties of a Guardian?

A guardian is responsible for caring for the physical needs of minor children, or adults who are disabled. They make decisions involving basic needs such as housing, clothing, medical care, and schooling. For minors, the Guardian is the person who will tuck your child in at night. For disabled adults, the Guardian is the person who decides if they can be cared for at home or if their condition requires placement in a group home, assisted living facility or nursing home.
