Public Conservator-Guardian

The Public Guardian or Public Conservator (PG/PC) conducts the official County investigation into conservatorship matters. The PG/PC also acts as the legally appointed guardian or conservator for persons found by the Superior Courts to be unable to properly care for themselves or their finances or who can't resist undue influence or fraud.  Such persons usually suffer from severe mental illness or are older, frail and vulnerable adults. The court can appoint a conservator of the person only, or of both person and estate.
