Guardians and Conservators
Both guardians and conservators are appointed and supervised by the court. In a guardianship or conservatorship proceeding, the court orders an appointment of a person/agency as a legal decision maker for an individual who has demonstrated an inability to make decisions for themselves based on medical and behavioral evidence. In the case of guardianship, these decisions relate to the person’s health, well-being and housing. In the case of conservatorship, these decisions relate to the person’s financial affairs including their assets and overall estate.
PGS is a well-regarded company dedicated to helping a person subject to guardianship get the care they need while ensuring he or she has a comfortable living situation and a safe environment. PGS can arrange and consent to services that are needed to provide for a person’s care, comfort, and overall needs. This may include food, clothing, shelter, health care, as well as social and recreational services. Guardians also have the ability to consent to medical treatment and other professional care, apply for benefits, and approve contracts with appropriate providers. The court monitors all activities related to the court appointed guardianship.
Along with guardianships, PGS has been providing conservatorships for over 15 years. A conservator is responsible for managing a person’s financial affairs and ensuring that their needs are being met. The company is responsible for making sound decisions on behalf of the individual’s bank accounts, including both checking and savings, as well as investments and other assets such as real estate. Typically, the conservator pays all bills and can enter into contracts that ensures the person’s housing costs and other services are paid. All financial matters are governed by the court and subject to audit by My MN Conservator programs.
