In Pennsylvania, there are different types of guardianships. For minors, these include:
- Temporary guardianships: This grants the temporary duties of a parent to another adult such as when going on vacation.
- Stand-by guardianships: Granting another adult guardianship should the biological parents be incapacitated or unable to care for a child.
A third type of guardianship is specifically for adults over the age of 18 in the case of incapacity. This will allow the guardian to make essential financial decisions on behalf of the incapacitated adult.
Conservatorships, on the other hand, generally refer to adults. A conservator will be appointed to take care of the person and the estate of an incapacitated individual. This means that the conservator will be responsible for the financial and physical wellbeing of an individual who cannot, or is unable to, make these important decisions for themselves.
Usually conservatorships are granted or people who have fallen into a coma or who have suffered from an accident, those with dementia or advanced Alzheimer’s disease, those who have mental or physical disabilities that prevent them from caring for themselves, or those suffering from other serious or debilitation diseases or injuries.
