Demographics in the United States are changing, and there is a larger older adult population than ever before. While some older adults have aged healthily and can maintain their own health and finances, that is not the case for other older adults. Older adults aging with dementia and other incapacitating illnesses, with no family or friends to assist them, may be referred for probate conservatorship. The purpose of this project was to revise an existing curriculum to train new conservators about the aging process, legal process of conservatorship, and estate management. By understanding these components of conservatorship, new conservators will be able to provide better service to conservatees. This project will utilize classroom training in addition to shadow training with conservators and conservatees. The training was reviewed by an expert panel and revised to its final version. It will be provided to the Office of the Public Guardian for implementation.
