I’ve seen the courts in LA define gravely disabled as unable to provide food, clothing, or shelter for oneself. Admittedly this is different than the standard LEOs (law enforcement officers) may use.

Check with your local SCDD office - many provide free In Case Of Emergency cards that you can customize with diagnosis, emergency contact numbers, medications, RC phone number, etc.
