"She can't make decisions for herself anymore. It's sad, we need a court appointed guardian and a conservator to protect her. Please help us."
Boston Massachusetts Guardianships and Conservatorships
Also Serving Andover and Raynham Massachusetts
Often, a guardian and a conservator are the same person. It is an enormous responsibility. Appropriate estate planning documents, such as powers of attorney and health care proxies, often do not exist for an impaired person. If no forward planning has been done, it is up to the court to decide to assist a disabled person with his or her day-to-day decisions. The court may assign a guardian or conservator to look after the best interest of the disabled person.
