18th Judicial Circuit Court – Guardian Monitor Volunteer

 Background: The Circuit Court appoints guardians for people who need help in making decisions about their daily lives. The guardian is responsible for protecting the person under guardianship: to manage any funds the person may have, and to arrange for care which will ade- quately provide for the ward’s physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being. The purpose of the Court Monitor is to give the court a way to obtain current information about wards and to verify that each is re- ceiving good care.

VOLUNTEER ROLE:

Court Visitor: The visitor goes to the ward’s residence, observes condi- tions and talks with the ward about his or her needs. The Visitor will also speak to the guardian and to any other caregivers. The Visitor re- ports back to the judge in writing.

Qualifications: Good listening and communication skills, friendliness, common sense, objectivity and the ability to maintain confidentiality.

Training and Support: A five to six hour video taped training is re- quired. Volunteers are supervised by Circuit Court Staff.

Each volunteer applicant will undergo a thorough background check.
