WHAT IS A GUARDIANSHIP?
Guardianship is appropriate when it can be proved beyond a reasonable doubt that the proposed ward is unable to provide for basic needs of food, shelter, clothing, healthcare, and safety, and are unable to manage their financial affairs. Often, these are people who are mentally incapacitated, incarcerated, homeless, or without immediate or extended family.

There are approximately 6000 people (2013), in New Hampshire who are under some form of guardianship whether it be family member, or lawyer. 1450 of those people are under the care of a public guardian (according to the NH state website).
