Guardians and conservators are appointed by the court to make personal and financial care decisions on behalf of another (the “ward”). However, the fact that one has been appointed a guardian or conservator does not mean that their authority to make decisions is necessarily unlimited. Courts are legally obligated to consider the least restrictive alternatives before issuing a guardianship or conservatorship that would grant full decision-making authority.
