ADEC’s Guardianship Services are a combination of protective and legal services serving disabled adults. Services are designed to protect clients, help with important medical and personal decisions and advocate for them when necessary.
We provide a full range of advocacy, decision-making and protective services to individuals unable to care for themselves. Without this program, many participating individuals with cognitive and developmental disabilities would fall through the cracks and create a burden on the community as a whole. Instead, these individuals are gifted with impeccable care and support throughout the duration of their lives. With 27 years of excellent service to our credit, the community has come to rely on us as a resource for consultation, education and direction regarding the legal guardianship process.
ADEC operates a corporate guardianship program which has adopted the National Guardianship Association Standards of Practice and Codes of Ethics as our policy and operating procedures. www.guardianship.org
Our staff are National Certified Guardians who maintain and renew this two year credential issued by the Center on Guardianship Certification. www.guardianshipcert.org
ADEC Services include:
- Full or limited guardianship
- Temporary or permanent guardianship
- Community Education about guardianship
- Training in self-advocacy
As a part of the Indiana Adult Guardianship Services Project ADEC is recruiting and training volunteers to be volunteer guardian advocates for adults with developmental disabilities. www.arcind.org/index/iags/project-mission-goals.asp
