When individuals cannot make decisions on their own, they may require the court appointment of a guardian. In Maryland, a guardian may be appointed to make health care decisions for a disabled person, or to be responsible for finding the proper home setting for that person. A guardian of the property is responsible for managing the assets, and paying the bills, of a disabled person. A guardianship proceeding can seek the appointment of just a guardian of the person, just a guardian of the property, or both.
