Silver Key’s Guardianship program provides comprehensive, personalized case management services and advocacy for individuals who have been deemed unable to make safe decisions for themselves by the El Paso County Probate Court.


What is Silver Key Guardianship?

Through visits, Court Appointed Guardians get to know their individual seniors and advocate for each person’s unique housing and personal care needs as well as their medical, social, financial, and end of life desires.

Silver Key Guardians are individuals who have the education and skill set to work with a wide variety of issues that impact many seniors. In addition, Guardians report to and have the support of the El Paso County Probate Court when complex, difficult decisions must be made.
