DRTx Helps Woman Avoid Unnecessary Guardianship

Kathleen was in an assisted living facility for many years when her family realized that as they were aging and having health issues, they needed to ensure Kathleen had the support she needed.

They reached out to DRTx for help and learned how a supported decision-making agreement would allow Kathleen to make her own choices about her life and keep her from being placed under an unnecessary guardianship that would strip her of her rights.

“I contacted DRTx and was so pleased to learn from them about this option,” said Doris, Kathleen’s sister-in-law. “The staff took Kathleen’s niece Laura and me through the steps needed to set up the agreement. We are forever grateful to them.”
