Welcome to the Office of Public Guardian, the agency responsible for providing public guardianship and conservatorship services to incapacitated adults. We were established by the 1999 Legislature in response to longstanding concerns about incapacitated adults without family members or friends to serve as their guardians. Results of a recent study suggest that as many as 1,100 Utahns still need guardians.
The ultimate goal of a guardian should be to help the incapacitated person gain or regain the ability to make his or her own decisions, so that the person no longer needs a guardian.
Please take a look at our pages or contact us for a copy of The Implementation Plan for the Office of Public Guardian.
New Hours: The Office of Public Guardian is open for service Monday - Friday, 8 AM - 5 PM. We can be reached at 801-538-8255
