Guardians and conservators are individuals (often family members), companies or organizations appointed by a Judge to make decisions for another adult that is incapacitated and unable to manage their finances, property, health care or living arrangements. An adult that is incapacitated is called a protected person. A guardian may help manage the protected person’s healthcare needs, medical appointments and housing. A conservator may help manage the protected person’s finances, investments and properties. The exact duties of a guardian and conservator are particular to the needs of the protected person. These duties are outlined in the Judge’s order that is issued when a guardianship or conservatorship is granted. On their website, they have posted information about: new changes to laws; their annual reports; bonding and audits; greater access to information; visitation; certification for professional guardians and conservators; the grievance process to file a complaint about a court-appointed guardian or conservator.
