No Less Restrictive Alternative to Plenary Guardianship

The Orphans’ Court properly concluded that there were no less restrictive alternatives for an alleged incapacitated person, and that a plenary guardian of his person and estate were necessary, when the alleged incapacitated person was shown to be suffering from “hallucinations, paranoid schizophrenia, diffuse cognitive dysfunction, psychotic disorder, and acute metabolic,” had no available family, friends, or other supports to help him make decisions, and had complicated health issues which he lacked the ability to comprehend and evaluate. In re: Estate of D.W., an Incapacitated Person, 1805 EDA 2023 (Pa. Super. 2/27/2024) (non-precedential).
