What We Do
The Guardianship Service Board (GSB) is appointed as the Guardian of the Person for adult residents of Franklin County, Ohio with a substantial mental impairment or developmental disability who have been declared incompetent by the Franklin County Probate Court.
We serve those with presenting situations that require legal authority to act, such as health care or residential decisions and those with no other adult or entity available and/or appropriate to be guardian.
We serve as the guardian of last resort to ensure that our clients’ needs are met with the least restrictive measures possible.
To provide person centered guardianship to vulnerable, incompetent, indigent adults. To provide support and education to other government entities forming a guardianship board and to persons who are or are considering serving as guardian to a loved one.
