The Administrative Office of the Courts has published more than 30 pages of information on its website about issues relating to adult guardianship and conservatorship.
The information is available at www.utcourts.gov under the Self-Help Resources heading/Life Planning and Probate/Guardianships and Conservatorships. The website information covers a broad range of topics, including banking, health care decisions, and record keeping decisions as well as community resources.
A guardianship matter is when the court appoints an individual or institution to make decisions on behalf of a person who is incapacitated, while a conservator is appointed to handle the financial affairs for someone who is incapacitated. An individual can be appointed in both roles.
