  • Conservatorship: A conservatorship is granted by the court when a judge determines that an adult is unable to care for their well-being or finances. The conservator will be appointed by the court to handle the adult’s care and/or finances.
  • Power of attorney: A general power of attorney is a legal agreement that allows one person to have authority over another person’s legal and financial matters. A power of attorney can result in broad legal authority or limited legal authority to make decisions about another person’s property, medical care, or finances. A power of attorney will typically not be valid if the principal becomes disabled.
