Guardians are appointed by the Court to make decisions on behalf of an individual who is incapacitated. The vast majority of Oregon Guardians are extremely caring and responsible individuals.
Even so, every year there are more than 2,900 confirmed cases of abuse against elders and adults with disabilities in Oregon. The National Center for Elder Abuse estimates that for every case of elder abuse that gets reported, five more go unreported.
Our goals are to identify abuse or exploitation of those under guardianship, and also to support the thousands of Guardians who care for older adults, persons with disabilities, and children.
