Requesting to be a loved one's guardian

When a person has an elderly loved one who has become incapacitated to the point where they cannot make health care decisions, they may be very concerned about their loved one's health and welfare. They may desire to be given the authority to make their loved one's health care decisions so they can protect their loved one's welfare. A question an individual with such a desire may have is: can I request to be named my loved one's guardian?

Full conservatorships and limited conservatorships

Sometimes, a medical problem an elderly individual has will render the individual unable to manage their finances and property. When such a situation arises, a court may be able to set up a conservatorship in relation to the elderly individual. Generally, in a conservatorship, a person is appointed to manage an impaired individual's finances and property. The appointed person is called the conservator.
