Many adults have a period of time toward the end of their life when they are unable to make decisions for themselves, perhaps due to Alzheimer’s, dementia, stroke, an accident or other medical condition. Establishing a guardianship and/or conservatorship can provide clarity for family members, determining who will deal with third parties and who will make decisions on behalf of the senior adult. A conservator handles financial matters, while a guardian makes decisions regarding the well-being of the senior adult.
