Court Visitor: Assessing Needs with Care
The Court Visitor role is an instrumental piece in the Guardianship process. Court Visitors are appointed by the Courts and are responsible for information gathering in many aspects: visiting the person, interviewing interested parties, reviewing medical and financial records, visiting present and potential placements. The Court Visitor must collaborate with attorneys and other key members of the team when formulating recommendations for the Court. Our Court Visitors are thorough in their work and create individualized reports that incorporate health and safety recommendations. Evidence-based, these reports recommend the best possible course of action for each person’s well-being while maximizing their independence. Visions receives Court Visitor assignments through the New Mexico DDPC’s Office of Guardianship and from private pay clients. For more information on these services, please contact us.
