Conservatorships are similar to guardianships, but refer to the case when an adult is physically or mentally incapable of caring for his or her own person or estate. They are most often granted to close relatives with a demonstrated desire and ability to care for the disabled adult. A conservatorship may be established if:
• Mental deterioration or physical incapacity prevent the adult from fully managing his or her person or estate
• Mental illness or developmental disability prevent the adult from fully managing his or her person or estate
• Gambling, idleness, debauchery, or excessive use of alcohol or drugs lead to the wasting of the person or his or her estate
