The American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging has completed a new guardianship reform publication entitled Working Interdisciplinary Networks of Guardianship Stakeholders: WINGS State Replication Guide 2019.
This replication guide is a resource for states seeking to establish or enhance a Working Interdisciplinary Network of Guardianship Stakeholders or WINGS. If your state does not have such a court-stakeholder partnership, this guide outlines 10 hallmarks of WINGS and 10 steps for creating one. If your state already has a WINGS or similar reform group, the guide includes tips for strengthening, sustaining and evaluating it.
If guardianship is going to change, an ongoing collective effort by courts and a broad range of community stakeholders will be required. We hope this Guide will help.
