Guardians and conservators are appointed by the court for persons who lack the physical and/or mental capacity to care for themselves and are found to be incapable of caring for themselves or their property. Guardians and conservators make decisions regarding the personal and financial affairs, respectively, of such incapacitated persons.

A guardian is a person appointed by the court who is responsible for the personal affairs of an incapacitated person. A guardian is responsible for making decisions regarding the incapacitated person’s support, care, health, safety, habilitation, education, therapeutic treatment, and if not inconsistent with an order of commitment, residence.

A conservator is a person appointed by the court who is responsible for managing the estate and financial affairs of an incapacitated person.
