NOTICE OF CONSERVATEE'S RIGHTS

When a person becomes a conservatee, he or she does not necessarily lose the right to take part in important decisions affecting his or her property and way of life. Every conservatee has the right to be treated with understanding and respect and to have his or her wishes considered. Every conservatee has all basic human rights and the right to be well cared for by his or her conservator. The conservatee has the right to ask questions and to express concerns and complaints about the conservatorship and the actions of his or her conservator. The conservatee may ask the court to review the conservator's management of the conservatorship if disputes cannot be worked out between them. Even if the conservatee does not take direct action, the court will periodically send a person, called a court investigator, to visit the conservatee, to inquire about his or her circumstances and desires, and to advise the conservatee of his or her rights. The court also may appoint a lawyer to represent the conservatee. The conservatee will be allowed the greatest degree of freedom and privacy possible consistent with the underlying reasons for the conservatorship. The conservator should give as much regard to the wishes of the conservatee as possible under the circumstances so that the conservatee may function at the highest level his or her ability permits. The conservator must give due regard to the preferences of the conservatee and to encourage the conservatee's participation in decision-making. THE CONSERVATEE'S RIGHTS After appointment of a conservator, the conservatee keeps the right to: Be represented by a lawyer; Ask a judge to replace the conservator; Ask a judge to end the conservatorship; Make or change his or her will; Directly receive and control his or her salary; and Control an allowance (an allowance is personal spending money the court has authorized the conservator to pay directly to the conservatee).
