What Scout Means to Us
We created Scout out of our desire to provide comprehensive, high-quality private guardianship services to incapacitated adults in central Indiana.
But the name “Scout” has a variety of meanings, one of which is:
“A soldier or other person sent out ahead of a main force so as to gather information about the enemy’s position, strength, or movements.”
While we don’t usually encounter enemies as part of guardianship, our team is out front gathering information, advocating, and exercising sound judgment to chart the best course of action for our clients.
We also think of “scout” when we consider the values of Boy and Girl Scout groups striving to instill high values, build character, and develop responsibility in young people. We think such qualities are worth striving for at any age.
Finally, the narrator of Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird, Scout Finch, is kind-hearted, compassionate, and fiercely loyal. She inspires with memorable lines like:
“I think there’s just one kind of folks. Folks.”
trustworthiness, loyalty, and dedication to first principles.

Learn More About the Scout Way
Scout was formed to bring an interdisciplinary team approach to its services.
Our ambition is to provide a model of professional advocacy services, one that exercises sound judgments for the benefit of our clients. We utilize a high level of interdisciplinary expertise and exhibit trustworthiness and integrity, all while acting in an appropriately transparent fashion.
Scout’s team approach also ensures continuity of services over long periods of time, regardless of changing circumstances. When an individual is named as guardian or health care representative, or given power of attorney, what happens when: They retire? They are out of town? They become disabled themselves? They pass away?
