Conservatorship in Tennessee

In a conservatorship, it is crucial to remember that individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities have the same rights as any other adult, except for rights that have been removed by the court in the conservatorship process.

Even when conservatorship has been established, the ward reserves several rights, including:

  • The right to equal treatment under the law
  • The right to confidentiality and privacy
  • The right to be treated with respect and dignity
  • The right to make decisions about any aspect of life which the court has not delegated to the conservator
  • The right to safe and humane living conditions
  • The right to petition the court to review, change, or remove conservatorship
  • The right to have the conservator consider his or her opinions, preferences, and wishes

Those who believe their rights or the rights of their loved ones are being violated by a conservator should seek assistance from a qualified lawyer immediately,

Conservatorship vs. Guardianship 

A guardianship is a court-appointed position that grants one person the right to make decisions and provide care for a minor under the age of 18.

A conservatorship is when a court grants an individual or entity the legal authority to manage the affairs of a person who is no longer able to make safe or appropriate decisions for themselves due to physical or cognitive disabilities. A conservatorship is also referred to as adult guardianship. The person making the decisions is referred to as the conservator, while the person for whom the decisions are being made is known as the ward.

A conservator may have limited authority to make certain decisions for the ward, such as those regarding:

  • Healthcare decisions
  • Financial decisions
  • Housing arrangements
  • Personal hygiene
  • Personal care and protection
  • Nutrition and meal preparation
  • Work decisions
  • Travel plans
