Petition for Appointment of a Guardian for Someone with a Disability 

Amended KRS 387.540 (6) to add APRNs to the interdisciplinary team of professionals who participate in the evaluation – a physiciaor an advanced practice registered nurse, a psychologist and a social worker. 

This change in statute would allow the APRN, who has been providing care to an individual who becomes disabled, to participate in the evaluation and petition to the court.

This petition for appointment of a guardian does not expand the number or types of providers who can determine disability for purposes of Social Security Insurance (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).
