Guardianship VASIA Program
Guardianships are a useful legal tool to help people who lack the capacity to make decisions for themselves-such as those suffering from dementia or developmental disability and have no family member to help. A guardian can help ensure that the protected person lives with security and dignity to the greatest extent possible given their circumstances. For information, please contact the Tipton Area Five Office, 765-675-4746.
Guardianship Volunteer Advocacy
VASIA (Volunteer Advocate for Seniors and Incapacitated Adults) volunteers are community members trained and overseen by the Guardianship Program Manager. Once trained, the Guardianship Program Manager will match the VASIA volunteers with an at-risk adult client to help advocate for their care and needs. If you are interested in becoming a VASIA volunteer, please contact the Tipton Area Five Office, 765-675-4746.
