In the Spotlight

General Info

The 11-member Adult Public Guardianship Review Board reviews each guardianship that a public agency holds and determines whether to continue, modify or terminate such arrangements. A guardian is a person or organization that is court-appointed to make medical and personal decisions for an individual who is incapable of doing so due to a physical or mental disability.

The Adult Public Guardianship Program: 
  • Serves as court-appointed public guardian of person for Anne Arundel County residents who are 65 years or older;
  • Provides education and information to citizens and professionals about the importance of medical advance directives, alternatives to guardianship, and the guardianship process;
  • Conducts investigations to identify capable relatives, friends, interested parties or organizations to assume medical decision-making responsibilities; and
  • Manages and coordinates decision-making regarding medical and personal care, including participation in the end-of-life decisions as ordered by the court.

Meeting Information

The Board meets at least twice annually, in April and October.
