Probate court seeks volunteers for guardianship program

OTTAWA COUNTY—The Ottawa County Probate Court is seeking individuals from the community for its Volunteer Guardianship Program. Training for the volunteers is scheduled for 1-5 p.m. on March 25 and 26 at Magruder Hospital in Conference Room A.

Volunteers will serve as guardians for persons that primarily reside at a health care campus or community-based care facility, who have no family or other support system to fulfill the role of surrogate decision maker.

A volunteer guardian provides the opportunity to nurture, advocate and care for another person in Ottawa County who otherwise would have no one in his or her life. You can help make a difference in making someone’s life better.

To sign up or for more information about this volunteer opportunity and its responsibilities, please contact Jennifer Simpson at 419-734-6833.

I wonder if this court has paid guardians as well. If volunteers can do it, then paid guardians aren't needed.
