People who are deemed no longer capable of handling their
own financial affairs may become conservatees of the Public
Guardian. After a court determines the need for such
assistance, the Public Guardian establishes a trust fund for
the person, with which he pays the conservatee's bills,
gives him money for personal needs, makes medical
appointments and otherwise monitors the welfare of the
person, making sure he has food, clothing and shelter. Some
conservatees continue in independent living situations, some
are in board and care, some may return to live with family
when possible. Others may be in locked facilities. Guardians
see to it that the clients are not a danger to themselves or
others and that others do not take advantage of them.
Eligibility Requirements: Based on determination of need.
Fees or Charges: According to ability to pay.
