Guardianship is the legal process in Nevada of the court appointing a person. The court will appoint a guardian for the incapacitated individual to look after the incapacitated person's finances and medical care.

Under the court-supervised process of a guardianship, the affairs of an incapacitated individual are brought before the court. A guardian is appointed to make important decisions for the incapacitated individual with the incapacitated person's best interests in mind. During the guardianship proceedings, the incapacitated individual is known as the ward. The type guardianship assigned determines the amount of responsibility entrusted upon the guardian: whether of the person, estate or person and estate.
When an individual is appointed as a guardian of the person, he or she is in charge of making the personal and medical decisions for the ward. When appointed as the guardian of the estate, he or she is responsible for making the ward's financial decisions. Guardian of the person and estate is simply a combination of the two.
