The 18th birthday is an important milestone, one that usually marks the first time when an individual is legally allowed to make his or her own decisions.
But sometimes even adults need guidance when making important medical or financial decisions, particularly adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
And sometimes there are no parents or friends in an individual’s life who are willing to take on that responsibility – or worse, sometimes those very people will use the relationship to take advantage of adults with disabilities.
That’s where ADEC’s corporate guardianship program – which has been protecting adults with disabilities in northern Indiana for more than 30 years now — comes in. ADEC currently serves more than 60 adults with disabilities by helping with personal decisions, advocating for them and protecting them.
