The Ontario Public Guardian and Trustee is a wonderful organization that we look forward to working with, who manage the financial affairs of people who are incapable of doing so themselves.

In some cases we volunteer to transfer patients for free Ö simply because our team wants to help alleviate the stress for some patients who are in real need! Because less stress promotes faster recovery and because we look forward to maintaining a long term relationship with our clients.
