My 96-year old father has not granted POA to anyone. He lives alone. His physical health is good, is ambulatory, but has cognitive impairment. At some point in the near future he will need assistance at home, but refuses to consider it and paying for it. I have been told that seeking legal guardianship is the only option I have to help care for him in the near future. Has anyone been through this? Is it difficult? As guardian, what are my liabilities? I just do not know what I am facing, nor do I want to upset my father by what I fear will be perceived by him as a stripping of his dignity.
