Guardianship Services

SCARC Guardianship Services, Inc. accepts the appointment of Guardian for adults with developmental disabilities who need a readily available guardian to act on their behalf. The organization serves as the sole guardian, co-guardian, or personal advocate for the individual.

We also accept the appointment of successor guardian for families who plan ahead to ensure that their loved one always has a Guardian even when they are no longer able or are here to serve in that capacity. Parents express tremendous relief and peace of mind when they have successfully planned for the organization to serve as the successor guardian for their child. SCARC Guardianship Services, Inc. makes a lifelong commitment and promise to the people for whom we serve and the families who have entrusted us with this important role.

Our caseworkers are National Certified Guardians and have fulfilled the requirements established by the National Guardianship Foundation.  They develop long-term relationships that empower each individual to be the best they can be. We get to know each person’s social, psychological, and medical histories to ensure they receive the best care and the decisions made on their behalf are in line with their wishes.

Our relationships are based on trust, loyalty and respect, ensuring that your loved one’s best interests are always our top priority. From interdisciplinary team (IDT) and individual service plan (ISP) meetings to doctors’ visits, we are there every step of the way to make sure that each individual is receiving the best care possible.

SCARC Guardianship Services, Inc. makes sure that each individual’s case has a series of checks and balances. Caseworkers report to the CEO of the organization, who in turn reports to the SCARC Guardianship Services, Inc. Board of Trustees to make sure that decisions are based on a working and knowledgeable relationship with each individual.

Whether SCARC Guardianship Services, Inc. is the sole guardian or co-guardian with a family member, we give the same attention to detail to each and every individual, enabling a lifetime of opportunity, comfort and safety for individuals with developmental disabilities.
