A ward is a person who has been appointed a guardian by a court. The reasons why a person may become a ward can be due to their age or because they are incapacitated.

If a court legally determines that a person is a ward, their guardian must answer to the courts on all matters that may have a legal bearing, such as how the guardian is spending the ward's money.
