If a loved one is physically or mentally incapacitated, and they do not have a power of attorney in place, they may need a guardian or conservator appointed.  A guardian would help them with personal matters such as living arrangements or medical care.  A conservator would help them with financial matters.  Guardianship and Conservatorship matters are filed in probate court and the process can be confusing.  I am able to explain the process to you and assist you with obtaining the type of appointment that is needed for your loved one's personal situation.
