The fact that someone has a disability does not automatically equate to the need for a conservator. The primary test for determining the need for a conservator focuses on the ability to make decisions and to communicate decisions once made.

 

The following questions might be considered in determining whether an individual has capacity to make decisions:

  • Does the individual understand that a decision needs to be made?
  • Does the individual understand the options available in making a decision?
  • Does the individual understand the potential consequences of the decision and options?
  • Can the individual direct the decision to appropriate parties?

The areas of decision making are wide ranging involving living conditions, medical care, vocational and educational services, caring for dependents and managing finances, etc…
