Thank you for your question.
A guardian is a person who is appointed by a judge to handle the personal affairs of an individual after they have been determined to be incapacitated by the court. Incapacitation could be in the form of age (a minor child for example can have a guardian) or due to illness, such as a person who had a stroke or dementia and can no longer manage their own affairs.
