PRESS RELEASE - GUARDIANSHIP TERMINATED IN FAVOR OF FORMALIZED SUPPORTED DECISION MAKING FOR THE FIRST TIME IN INDIANA

RICHMOND – Indiana Disability Rights (IDR) announces the filing of a petition for the termination of guardianship in favor of using formalized Supported Decision Making. The petition states that the Petitioner, Jamie Beck, believes she no longer qualifies as an “Incapacitated Person” as defined by Indiana Code because she is able to effectively and competently manage her affairs by using the supports and services available to her through full-time employment with benefits, and waiver services. With the use of a formalized Supported Decision Making agreement, Jamie will have additional support from a team, chosen by her, to help her with making life’s tough decisions.  This is the first time such an agreement has been used in Indiana. Melissa Keyes, IDR Legal Director, and Justin Schrock, IDR Staff Attorney, serve as Jamie’s attorneys on the case.  The process and form are part of a pilot project sponsored by a grant from the Administration for Community Living and Indiana’s Working Interdisciplinary Network of Guardianship Stakeholders (WINGS).
