A lot of people have fallen victims of the wrong choice of conservator because the human mind cannot really be understood by mere physical appearance. Most conservatees are really helpless and need assistance. It is not possible for a widow to stay forever with her children. The children might go to college or get married, and she becomes alone, but with such loneliness comes a lot of challenges. She might become depressed, and begin to suffer some mysterious experiences that can lead to mental disturbances and other related illnesses. What should be her fate? Continue to stay alone without having the right mind to plan or manage herself? These are some of the reasons conservatorship is planned for. Situations like these might have been averted if the durable power of attorney has been earlier arranged, but in the absence of it, you can consult with a conservatorship Attorney Los Angeles, Woodland Hills, Encino, Tarzana, Chatsworth and the entire San Fernando Valley to guide you aright.
Have you also considered the need for an elderly person who is old and need medical attention to be cared for by another person? Some of these people have undergone the power of attorney or have family members holding the power of attorney, but due to distance or some other reasons; such persons are not reachable when needed, making the only alternative plan to be conservatorship, and no one can blame such decisions because they are made to save a life. The essence of seeking expert service arises from all forms of negative stories we daily hear from either the television or newspapers about how elders left in the hands of conservators are being abused. Some of these guardians steal quite some huge amount of money from their conservatees. Can you imagine that? Remember, some of them (conservatees) are old and helpless. What can they do if they are ill and bedridden? This is why the warning is coming that clients should be careful on whom they choose as conservators.
It is also a known fact that when a conservatorship has been planned, there is a limit to what the ward can do because he or she can thenceforth not be able to do anything as far as personal decision is concerned such as choice of apartment, how to spend money and who to relate with. All these decisions are solely transferred to the guardian. Experience has shown that if a public conservator is accused of any form of abuse, court attorneys are often reluctant in filing appropriate actions against him or her. And the effect is deprivation of the conservatee’s civil liberties. Since both conservators and courts are practically not working to satisfy the person under their care, most of them die before their expected time due to lack of care and being transferred to unfamiliar environment. The only solution here is getting a conservatorship Attorney Los Angeles, Woodland Hills, Encino, Tarzana, Chatsworth and the entire San Fernando Valley who will be there to stand by you and bring any abusive guardian to book.
