Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You are not legally exposed to liability simply by being his guardian. If nobody can manage his behaviors, it is your duty to work with the agency to find an appropriate facility that can care for people with his specific disabilities, but you do not face legal liability for his conduct, it is your duty to act for him since he cannot do so.
