Through the years there has been a focus on conflict free case management.  SC's can not work as DSP as an example.  I would like someone to explain then how a residential provider can become guardian to an individual living in their group home? 

In the manual on page 78, that it is important for SC's to support people in having a voice to express their preferences in services, providers and plans, even when they have a substitute decision maker. 

Providers are becoming guardians without the SC's knowledge, it is shared after the fact.  I would think the guardianship process should include talking with SC and should also be conflict free.
