The results of the survey indicate DADS interactions with the courts in which guardianships are filed and heard are generally positive. Staff were commended by many courts for their timeliness, professionalism and the “great” job they were doing. Some comments highlight an opportunity for DADS to increase the program’s responsiveness to individual courts. A number of the issues raised by the courts are outside the control of DADS or cannot be resolved without legislative action. All comments are considered valuable by the DADS management team and are being reviewed for further action and improvement. As part of on-going outreach opportunities an e-mail notification will be sent to all courts with probate authority when the guardianship brochure is made available on the DADS website.
