The term “guardian” generally refers to a person who is appointed by a court to be responsible for the health, nutrition, education, residence and personal care of another human being.  In limited situations, a guardian may also be a person nominated by a parent to care for their child.  The person for whom the guardian is appointed is called the “ward,” who may be a minor or an incapacitated adult.
