When you are looking to help your parent but are undecided about going forward with the method to assist your mother or father, you should consider a list of a few things:
- Does your parent need formal help?
- Will your parent do better with informal help?
- How will your parent feel if you sold his or her house?
- Has a geriatric care manager examined your parent to determine if there are easier options than conservatorships?
- Is your parent competent to sign a power of attorney?
- If you obtain a power of attorney from a parent, will your siblings engage in a rebellion against you?
- What are the costs of going forward with a conservatorship in Los Angeles?
- If you start a conservatorship, will you be able to keep diligent records of your parents’ assets, income and expenses?
