Guardianships Vs. Conservatorships: What To Know
A guardianship is a legal arrangement in which the court appoints a guardian to manage the personal, legal, medical and financial affairs of a ward. Guardianships often come into play when an elderly person loses their cognitive capacity or has a disability that prevents them from caring for themselves. Similarly, a conservatorship is when the court appoints a conservator to manage the financial and legal affairs of a conservatee.
