WVC 44 A- 2 - 11 §44A-2-11. Limited guardianships.

(a) A limited guardian may be appointed for an individual who is deemed to be a protected person in need of a guardian within the meaning of section four, article one of this chapter, but is capable of addressing some of the essential requirements for his or her health, care, safety, habilitation, or therapeutic needs.

(b) A limited guardian may be appointed for an individual who otherwise is deemed to be a protected person within the meaning of this chapter, and who resides in a supervised setting such that the individual's health, care, safety, habilitation and therapeutic needs are being attended to without interference, but whose impairment warrants the appointment of a substitute decision-maker for purposes of the ultimate decisions of the location of residence and major medical decisions, and the like.

(c) A limited guardian may be appointed for the sole purpose of providing for an individual who otherwise is deemed to be a protected person within the meaning of this chapter, and whose health, care, safety, habilitation and therapeutic needs are being attended to in a supervised residence, but whose only need is for a substituted decision-maker in the event of a major medical decision.
