Video: What is the difference between a guardian of the person and a guardian of the property?

The difference between a guardian of the person and a guardian of the property has to do with the rights that are delegated to the guardian. For instance, a guardian of the person manages medical and mental health decisions, social decisions, and decisions relating to your placement, whereas a guardian of the property will manage your rights pertaining to contracting, suing and defending lawsuits, and managing your assets.
