Louisiana Guardianship Services

What is Louisiana Guardianship Services?

Louisiana Guardianship Services, Inc, (LGSI) is a private, non-profit corporation that can act as guardian (or “curator” as it is called in Louisiana law) for adults who are incapacitated to the extent they are unable to make their own decisions. LGSI was incorporated in Louisiana in 1992.elderly

LGSI can be given the authority to make decisions for an incapacitated adult in areas outlined by the court – personal, financial, residential, medical, etc.

LGSI does not file interdictions (the Louisiana term for a guardianship proceeding) on behalf of anyone. LGSI’s function is to act as curator when a court determines that there is no family member or friend that can do so. If you believe that someone should have a guardian appointed to manage his/her affairs, you must contact an attorney to file an interdiction proceeding.disabledguardianshipimage

Upon its appointment and the issuance of Letters of Curatorship, LGSI will provide a trained curator for the incapacitated person.  LGSI belongs to the National Guardianship Association, and its staff curators are trained, tested, and registered with the National Center for Guardianship Certification.  LGSI’s Executive Director, Greg Mullowney, served as the 2006 President of the National Guardianship Association, and has been certified as a Master Guardian by the National Center for Guardianship Certification.

He was honored in 2011 by the Center for Guardianship Certification with its National Master Guardian Star Achievement Award, which recognizes exemplary work as a CGC National Master Guardian and demonstrated knowledge of advanced guardianship issues, concepts, and ethics.
