What are conservatee’s rights

Because the establishment of a conservatorship significantly curtails the conservatee’s rights, the court may not appoint a conservator unless the need for one is established by clear and convincing evidence. Prob C §1801(e). The court must review the conservatorship periodically to ensure that it remains in the best interests of the conservatee; the court investigator must report to the court at the following times (Prob C §§1800(e), 1850—but see Caveat below):
Six months after the appointment, to report whether the conservatorship is appropriate and whether the conservator is acting in the best interests of the conservatee; and
One year after the appointment of the conservator and annually thereafter, unless the court sets a different review period.
These provisions, like most of the law of conservatorships in the Probate Code, reflect the stated public policy of protecting the interests of the conservatee.
