It can often times be scary when you find yourself in a situation where you need to look into guardianship and conservatorship options. In most cases, when you have a family member that is no longer able to care for themselves you will need to think about these options. How do you know which option is right for you? They are both similar in some aspects, but they have a lot of differences as well.
Guardianship vs. Conservatorship
Guardianship means completely taking care of the health or well-being of another person. This is generally the case when people are not able to care for themselves anymore. When you take on the role as a guardian, you are not only responsible for the financial aspects of their care, but also their physical and personal care as well. This is a big task, and should be taken on by someone with a lot of commitment and dedication.
Conservatorship is generally considered when someone does not have the mental capacity to handle their own finances. They have a conservator that will help them to budget, pay bills, track financial accounts, and handle their money effectively. They are made to help protect their investments and their finances. It is important to have someone that is trustworthy and reputable to be appointed as a conservator.
