Guardianships & Conservatorships
When a person becomes incapable of making decisions about themselves or their property due to incapacitation or other health issues, the State of Minnesota offers legal remedies for handling the situation. These include the creation of conservatorships and guardianships on behalf of incapacitated individuals. Guardianships and conservatorships differ in that guardianships allow one individual to make personal decisions for another individual, including determining where they will live and receive medical care; conservatorships, however, allow the Conservator to manage the incapacitated person's estate and make financial decisions on their behalf.
