Confidence to ask questions when needed and to act when the situation calls for it. Effective verbal and written communication skills. What will be required of a volunteer guardian? Attendance at our Guardianship Training Class. One hour per week for visits, care planning, and documentation. Visit with clients once per week for an hour to develop rapport and build a trusting relationship in which they feel comfortable confiding in you or expressing grievances. Act as an advocate and follow up with caregivers to settle grievances or address concerns the client may have. Keep notes about the client to help you in writing the annual report for the court. Develop a collaborative relationship with caregivers to ensure the client is receiving the highest quality of care possible. Assist clients to make decisions or act as a medical proxy when they cannot make decisions concerning their own health and safety.
