We are excited to introduce our Education & Training affiliate, The Guardianship Academy!

The Guardianship Academy provides education, training and support to guardians, volunteers, family and those in need of advance directives. We have programs on the basics of guardianship; how to be a guardian; how to be a health care proxy and; the importance of advance directives. We have also started a monthly meeting for those involved in guardianship called “Guardianship Rounds” – based on the model of hospital grand rounds, giving those involved in guardianship a forum for discussion and support.

Our team at the Guardianship Academy is hard at working making our programs accessible to everyone through webinars!

Our programs can be tailored to meet the needs of most groups.

Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about any of our trainings, or would like to host a program at your facility.
