A court-appointed guardian may be authorized by the courts to make decisions for another person, also known as the ward, who is over 18 and unable to care for themselves due to a mental deficiency, mental illness or other condition. The guardian makes a number of decisions on the ward's behalf, including health care and residence.

Conservatorships are set up for children and incapacitated adults. A conservator appointed by the court manages to make decisions regarding property and financial affairs for another person. On behalf of the ward, the conservator is responsible for any or all of the following:

  • Opening a bank account to pay bills and debts
  • Documenting protected assets and providing an inventory to the court
  • Supervising and maintaining those assets
  • Accounting for expenses paid on the protected person's behalf
  • Applying for medical, employment and government benefits
