Source: Oklahoma Department of Human Services
Content Type: Handbook
The handbook is available as a PDF document. It was developed for guardians of people with developmental disabilities, but it is an excellent source of information for all guardians. It provides information on the guardianship process; the different types of guardianship; the DDSD guardianship voucher program; the responsibilities of a guardian; liabilities and limitations of a guardian; and end of life issues. It also provides helpful web sites for guardians, as well as appendices of annual reports and documents.

Another way to approach it is by category of tasks, either before or after going through a 24-hour approach. Taking a cue from VegasLady's post, that would include the categories she mentioned, including emergencies.

Then put yourself in the judge's position, pretend you know nothing about your LO, and ask questions you think a judge may want to address. But be aware that a detailed plan will probably be assigned to someone else for review with a synopsis report (or approval/disapproval or recommendations from the reviewing party).

I've only worked on guardianships from the perspective of attorneys handling them, so I don't have hands on experience with this.

Brainstorm everything you can think of regarding her needs... from A-Z, or think through a 24 hour day...how you'll get her to bed, administering meds, all the Activities of Daily Living (in detail), and the IADLs, the more sophisticated activities of life...paying bills, social activities, religious needs, contact with family, etc. If you had a baby sitter for an infant, what would you think through and give instructions for? Now you are responsible for an adult, so how will you see to it that she has appropriate care. When you write down your ideas as they come to you, just generate all the ideas you can. Friends or family could help with this. Then organize and edit your plan. Put it together in a reasonable, literate presentation for the court. Ask around or google for examples. Just don't get overwhelmed, break down the day and think about the processes that have to be completed and how they'll get done, who will do them, where, and how they'll be paid for. I think that would be your care plan.
