When vulnerable individuals are not able to make their own good, responsible medical, personal and financial decisions, Cindi Spence helps by getting a substitute decision maker appointed through the courts, or developing a less restrictive strategy that will make sure they are safe and protected. Examples of people who need guardianship assistance range from a child who is turning 18 and has challenges such as ADHD, learning disabilities or other cognitive or behavioral disabilities; an elderly individual suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease; or individuals with mental illnesses or other debilitating illnesses.
