Conservatorship and Elder Care
Guidance & Mediation in Pasadena - (888) 844-9530
Oftentimes one of the stressful and difficult seasons in a person's life is caring for their elderly loved ones. You want what's best for your parent, grandparent, or other aging loved one, but so many factors complicate the decision-making process. If an elder in your life has reached the point where he or she cannot take care of himself or herself independently, you are likely facing many difficult choices. A compassionate and experienced family law mediator can help you and your relatives navigate all of these kinds of difficult decisions.
You may be experiencing disagreement with a spouse, with siblings, or even with the elderly loved one regarding how to move forward. Maybe you disagree about where the elderly loved one should live or if he or she should move to an assisted living facility. Perhaps different family members have divergent ideas about how the elderly person's finances should be handled or what kind of freedoms he or she should be given considering their physical or mental limitations.
Perhaps you have turned to or are considering conservatorship, which is when the court appoints a certain individual to be the official caretaker of an elderly person who has become unable to manage his or her finances and daily affairs independently. Understandably, your family may have disagreements or concerns about who this conservator should be. Maybe you are worried that the conservator or prospective conservator is not handling the elderly person's affairs responsibly or fairly.
