When a parent or grandparent is showing signs of not being able to exercise self-care any longer, you might have to make plans for someone else to look after your elderly relative. Some Pennsylvania residents ask a court to appoint a conservator, also known as a guardian, to take care of their loved one. As FindLaw explains, this is not a simple process and may require careful consideration of alternatives before proceeding.
Parents of children with special needs have all sorts of fears about what will happen to their offspring when they are no longer around to care for them. Some of these fears include their children losing money that they need for their daily care. This is one reason why Pennsylvania parents create special needs trusts for their children to help guard their children's money.
