  • Reach Out….Be a Volunteer Guardian!

Volunteer guardians are needed in La Crosse County.  As a volunteer guardian you would be appointed to help a person who is unable to make independent decisions about their own general welfare.  These decisions could be about health care, finances, living arrangements, or social and supportive services. 

As a volunteer guardian, you would be matched with someone whose needs fit your skills, abilities and interests. You would receive support and assistance as needed from La Crosse County Adult Protective Services and the Wisconsin Guardianship Support Center.

People who need help from a guardian may have a degenerative brain disorder, such as Alzheimer’s disease, severe and persistent mental illness, developmental disabilities, or a similar problem. Your assistance will help to ensure a good quality of life for someone who needs an advocate and has limited support from family or friends. Volunteer guardians often find they enjoy long-lasting friendship beyond the duties of guardianship.

To find out more information about becoming a volunteer guardian, please contact the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Western Wisconsin at 608-785-5700 or 1-800-500-3910 or email adrcntr@co.la-crosse.wi.us
