An adult guardianship (or conservatorship) is typically sought when a person is thought to be unable to make responsible decisions regarding personal care or finances. Often this is due to dementia, mental incapacity, or developmental disability.
A guardian is the person appointed by a court to handle the personal affairs of the incapacitated person. A conservator is appointed to handle financial affairs. A guardian and conservator may be the same person. In Massachusetts, different types of guardianships and conservatorships have different duties, responsibilities, and duration.
