What Is A Conservatorship?
A conservatorship is part of an estate plan that allows you to choose who will make decisions for you if you cannot take care of yourself personally, medically or financially.
There are different types of conservatorships and several areas of decision-making that can be authorized by the court. It is an important legal process that has many steps, and it involves a doctor and attorneys for both the decision maker and the adult needing assistance. Because the mental status of the adult is reviewed, it is important that his or her physician is contacted and the need for a conservatorship is thoroughly discussed.
