It is the intent of the legislature to protect the liberty and autonomy of all people
of this state, and to enable them to exercise their rights under the law to the maximum
extent, consistent with the capacity of each person. The legislature recognizes that people with incapacities have unique abilities and
needs, and that some people with incapacities cannot exercise their rights or provide
for their basic needs without the help of a guardian. However, their liberty and autonomy should be restricted through the guardianship
process only to the minimum extent necessary to adequately provide for their own health
or safety, or to adequately manage their financial affairs.
