Abstract

Introduction: Today the number of applications for legal guardianship has increased among geriatrics. In Turkey, the assessment of legal guardianship is made within the framework of the 405th and 408th articles of the Turkish Civil Code. To the best of our knowledge, there are no published articles dealing with reports of legal guardianship for geriatric citizens. Therefore we aimed to evaluate legal guardianship reports in light of the related literature.
