LGSI contracts with the Louisiana Governor’s Office of Elderly Affairs to provide guardians (or “curators” as they are called in Louisiana law) to elderly individuals. (Kenny: please note deletion of rest of this paragraph on the website)
LGSI may also accept fee-for-service appointments, as staff time permits, to act as guardian (curator). Referrals should be made to Executive Director Greg Mullowney at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Executive Director must approve all judgments before they are submitted to ensure that they will conform to the agency’s needs and allow it to act in the best interests of the interdict and will provide the courts with specific provisions that may be needed.
LGSI will provide an Oath and Letters of Curatorship upon acceptance of the guardianship. LGSI will not accept appointments that have not been discussed with it prior to the judgment. Please see Louisiana Revised Statutes 9:1031 et seq.
