Salt Lake, UT—The Utah Court Visitor Program is offering free classes for guardians and caregivers from September 16 through November 17.

A class to address alternatives to guardianship is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 16 from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Taylorsville Senior Center, 4743 South Plymouth View Drive. On Friday, Oct. 16 from 10 to 11 a.m., a class on the process and procedures to take in order to obtain guardianship is scheduled at the Draper Senior Center, 1148 E. Pioneer Road. Then on Tuesday, Nov. 17 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. a class is scheduled at the Liberty Senior Center, 251 East 700 South, and will focus on community resources available for guardians and caregivers.
