Guardianship is a mechanism that enables people to care for and protect others who may not be able to do so themselves. Whether due to mental or physical disability or incapacity suffered from an accident, why exactly the individual in question cannot make decisions on their own is largely irrelevant in the eyes of the law. Guardianship can even be applied to minors, who are not yet legally eligible to make decisions in certain contexts.
A guardian is an individual or entity who is legally recognized to make decisions on behalf of an individual in question so that they can manage their personal affairs. These affairs can range from financial decisions, whether managing personal savings or investing in securities, to health decisions and even matters pertaining to their residence.
