Conservatorship and guardianship for elderly parents

If your loved one becomes incapacitated without having a proper power of attorney prepared for health care or a durable power of attorney for financial matters, a conservatorship may be needed. In a conservatorship, the court appoints a conservator to take charge of the incapacitated person’s (the conservatee) personal needs, financial matters or both.
