Guardianships or Conservatorships are established in order to ensure that family members who are unable to care for themselves and/or their property are cared for in a competent and professional manner. A Guardianship is a legal relationship between a competent adult, the Guardian, and the Ward, a person who is 18 or older who is incapacitated. The Guardianship is established through the court system and must be revisited on an annual basis in order to keep the court informed on the Ward and their assets.
