When a person is unable to manage their own financial affairs or health care decisions — a child with a disability who is turning 18, an aging parent suffering from dementia, a vulnerable adult being exploited, or an adult injured in an accident — a substitute decision-maker is needed. If the individual does not have proper planning in place, a guardianship or conservatorship may be required. Guardianship deals with health care and other decisions related to the person. Conservatorship addresses financial management. We can assist you in determining the most efficient and least restrictive option to protect your loved one.
