Louisiana Guardianship Services, Inc. (LGSI) is for adults who are incapacitated to the extent they are unable to make their own decisions. We can be given the authority to make decisions for an incapacitated adult in areas outlined by the court – personal, financial, residential, medical, etc.
Louisiana Guardianship Services, Inc., is a private, not-for-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 contracts with the state of Louisiana Governor's Office of Elderly Affairs (GOEA) and the Louisiana Department of Health's Offices for Citizens with Developmental Disabilities (OCDD) and Adult & Aging Services (OAAS) to provide curators for disabled individuals without willing, able, or appropriate family members, when they determine these individuals need someone to manage their affairs.
Contributions from the public comprise a significant portion of our agency's budget, and allow us to continue serving our state's low-income elderly and developmentally disabled. All contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
