Guardianship Resources

Brookdale does not provide direct services around guardianship. Those wishing to become guardians can take our Article 81 Guardianship Training.

The Guardian Assistance Network (GAN) offers support, advice and training to family and friend guardians in New York State.

The Vera Institute of Justice’s Guardianship Project provides court-appointed agency guardians to older and disabled individuals. The project currently provides services in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx.

Specific forms related to the guardianship process can be downloaded from the website of the New York State Unified Court System.
