About Legal Guardianships
As a non-profit corporate fiduciary, once appointed to be the guardian of an individual who has been determined by a court to be incapacitated, River Communities Fiduciary Services, Inc. (RCFS) is then responsible to make certain decisions on behalf of that individual. Our primary goal is to ensure that individuals under our guardianship are treated as valued members of the community and are served in the least restrictive and least institutional setting possible. Many of our clients can live independent lives in the community with supervision. We prefer to provide support to clients in their own homes; when this is not possible, we have considerable experience in developing non-institutional residential settings. For clients in nursing homes we make regular visits to ensure that appropriate care is provided and advocate for less restrictive alternatives if and when possible.
