Supported Decision-Making Toolkit

Description

Supported Decision-Making is an alternative to guardianship through which individuals get help from trusted family members, friends and professionals to help them understand the situations and choices they face, so they can make their own decisions. Supported Decision-Making enables individuals to ask for support where and when they need it. Supported Decision-Making agreements can be used for many kinds of decisions including medical, financial, housing and other life matters. Powers of attorney, representative payees and simple release of information forms can also help families provide the needed supports and safeguards without going to court and imposing guardianship restrictions.
