Guardian: A financial conservator is assigned by the court for someone who lacks capacity to make decisions about their finances. The same person or another person assigned by the court, can be a legal guardian who can make health care decisions. Many states require a conservator for patients with mental illnesses as well. These are assigned in cases of abuse, lack of next of kin or a power of attorney.
