Customer Question

We currently have an aging family member with diabetes and dementia in the hospital in Northern California that is need of a conservator. We do not want to use the California public guardian as they have a less than stellar reputation nor can we take on
the role of conservator ourselves. He does not have an estate to speak of so we are looking for a list of charitable organizations that can provide conservatorships (preferably in OC/LA county).

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I am afraid that there are really no non-profit entities that will take on conservatorship because of the liability and risk. The only possible thing you can try is contacting Associated Catholic Charities, as they have attorneys and other professionals in all areas and they have a network that they can use to direct people to low cost services.

Aside from Catholic Charities, there really are no other groups that could handle or would handle this besides the public guardian program.
