What is a Conservatorship?

A conservatorship is a court proceeding in which someone is appointed to care for another adult who is physically or mentally unable to attend to their personal needs, their financial affairs, or both. The individual appointed by the court is known as the "conservator.” The person being taken care of is known as the “conservatee.” A conservator appointed to make personal care decisions is known as a “conservator of the person.” A conservator appointed to manage financial affairs is known as a “conservator of the estate.” Commonly, an individual is appointed to act as both conservator of the person and estate. Often, documents may already be in place that offer a better alternative to a conservatorship. Depending on the circumstances, however, the only effective answer may be a conservatorship.
