Conservatorships

A conservatorship is a legal relationship in which a responsible adult (the “conservator”) takes care of a person who cannot take care of himself or herself (the “conservatee”). The court allows the conservator to do certain things that the impaired person cannot do themselves. There are two types of conservatorships:

    1. Conservatorship of Person. The conservator takes care of the conservatee’s well-being, such as the conservatee’s physical health, food, clothing, shelter, safety, comfort, recreation, and social needs.
    2. Conservatorship of Estate. The conservator manages all aspects of the conservatee’s finances and makes accountings to the court.
