When a loved one’s memory and ability to make rational decisions becomes irretrievable, sometimes a Medical Power of Attorney and Financial Power of Attorney are not enough to protect his or her assets and well-being. This can happen because your loved one experiences a cognitive deterioration due to Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or other medical condition affecting memory and reasoning, or simply due to advanced old age. It can also happen if the person designated as his or her medical or financial agent, or someone else close to your loved one is exploiting or neglecting him or her, and not acting in his or her best interest.
If any of these circumstances occur, seeking a court-appointed Guardian to manage your loved one’s day-to-day needs and well-being, or a court-appointed Conservator to manage his or her finances and assets, is highly recommended. A court-appointed Guardian and/or Conservator is accountable to the court to act exclusively in the best interest of your loved one, and will best protect your loved one from isolation, declining health, and financial exploitation, deterioration or ruin.
