What are the results of a conservatorship?
The establishment of a conservatorship has three basic results:
- It shifts the responsibility of making financial and personal care decisions from the disabled individual (the conservatee) to the court appointed conservator.
- It imposes significant limitations on the ability of the conservatee to take actions affecting finances or personal care.
- It provides a certain degree of protection for the conservatee’s interests from fraud, misappropriation of funds or neglect.
