A Guardian looks after the care and medical decisions of someone who has become incapacitated. A Conservator manages a person’s financial affairs. The same individual can serve as one or both.
Why is this important? Often, a person wanting to care for another lacks the legal authority to do so:
Parents of an incapacitated child need the Court’s permission to continue parenting after the child turns eighteen.
An adult who suddenly becomes incapacitated, may end up in a situation where the court assigns a guardian or conservator who may very well be a complete stranger.
Elder Law, PLC can help avoid situations like these by working with you to create appropriate estate documents. If you care to act as a Guardian or Conservator for an incapacitated loved one, Elder Law, PLC can petition the Court on your behalf. When no one else is available, Elder Law, PLC is able and willing to assume these roles.
