Conservatorships are always granted by the Court and we work closely with several attorneys that specialize in the kind of law. We can serve as both the Conservator of the Person, which means we are responsible for the day to day care of the conserved person, as well as the Conservator of the Estate, where we manage the financial affairs of the conserved person.
Many times, a family member is appointed by the court to be the Conservator of the Person, making the healthcare and daily living decisions. A professional Fiduciary is often appointed to be the Conservator of the Estate, handling the financial affairs. We will work closely with the Conservator of the Person communicating regularly so that all needs are met.
One example might be a client with dementia whose family member would make the healthcare decisions and select the living arrangements for the client. We will stay in close contact, making sure funds are available as they needed.
