Elder Abuse Center Releases Excellent Guide to Conservatorship Alternatives

The National Center on Elder Abuse has released a guide called “Decision-Making Options that Are Less Restrictive than Guardianship” which evaluates 13 alternatives to court-imposed conservatorships to manage the financial and personal decisions for people who may lack decisionmaking capacity. The guide should serve as a checklist for any person considering a conservatorship to ensure that a conservatorship is really needed. Conservatorships are time-consuming, expensive, and very restrictive. If alternatives are available, they should, by all means, be used.
