A guardian or conservator is appointed by the court when an individual has been determined to be mentally or physically incapacitated. The guardianship can cover either the person's money, or the person's safety and welfare, or both. 

The guardian has a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of the individual. A guardian has total control over the person they are appointed to serve. Learn more about the duties of a guardian or conservator here.
