Does guardianship ever end?
Guardianship is normally a long-term relationship. The court may modify, revoke, or terminate the guardianship if the ward's ability to make and communicate decisions is demonstrated to the court. The procedures governing the modification of guardianships again may vary but each state addresses the issue.

In Frederick County, the Adult Disabled Review Board meets quarterly to review each ward's case individually for appropriateness of guardianship and the need for continued guardianship services.
