Conservatorship is designed for adults who require the most assistance with making decisions regarding health, finances, housing, employment, etc. A person who receives these services is assigned a Conservator Representative (CR).
A CR acts on behalf of the court appointed conservator, which is the said agency, Good Samaritan Providers Inc. CRs are assigned a caseload of individuals who are within a close proximity, so they are never too far to cater to a client’s specific needs. CRs are liaisons between agencies, institutions, the conservator and circles of support. A CR is an advocate for the people they serve.
Supported Decision Making, which is a less restrictive alternative to conservatorship or guardianship, will introduce the role of a Personal Advocate (PA).
PAs are assigned a caseload composed of individuals who require some assistance with making decisions regarding health, finances, housing, employment, etc. The PA supports the client’s decision, making sure their views and choices are always heard and made top priority.
