Appointment of guardian; concurrent commitment hearing.  Provides that, upon the request of a person who petitions for the appointment of a guardian for an incapacitated adult, the court may hold a hearing for the involuntary commitment of such adult at the same time as the hearing on the guardianship petition. The bill also increases from 10 days to 30 days the length of time a guardian can voluntarily admit the incapacitated person to a facility if authorized to do so in the guardianship order.
