MATTER OF THE GUARDIANSHIP OF MENAWATTIE H., — This is a proceeding pursuant to Article 17-A of the Surrogate's Court Procedure Act for the appointment of the petitioners as guardians of the person of the respondent, an alleged mentally retarded person. Upon the oral and documentary proof adduced at the hearing at which the respondent was present, it appears to the satisfaction of the court that the respondent is a mentally retarded person within the provisions of Article 17-A of the SCPA, that she lacks the capacity to make health care decisions, and that the petitioners and standby guardian are qualified to assume the responsibility of serving as the respondent's guardian.
