SIGNS OF COGNITIVE DECLINE IN ELDERLY: CONSERVATORSHIP IN LOS ANGELES

Conservatorships: Clients in Los Angeles often ask us whether they should become conservators for an elderly, disabled, aging parent, or a disabled child.    Below is a checklist we have developed to help you see signs of cognitive decline to best determine whether it is time to consider a conservatorship for a relative in Los Angeles.

1.   Can he or she properly administer medication to himself or herself?  Does he/she order the medication timely?
2.   Can he or she understand the consequence of making a medical decision?
​3.   Can he or she provide food or shelter for himself?  Check to see of there is fresh food in the house.
4.   Is he or she easily influenced by others to give away his or her money?
​5.   Are there signs that he or she cannot be safe when left alone at home?
​6.   Is he or she bathing himself or herself regularly?
7.   Does he or she wear clean clothes or wash his or her clothes?

8.   Are there bills that are unpaid?  Are there piles of unopened mail?
9.   Is he or she forgetful of recent events?
10.  Are there people who are trying to take financial advantage of him or her?

11.  Does he/she exercise poor judgment?

12.  Does he/she try to drive, even though he/she has been told not to drive by a physician?

13.  Does he/she drive despite his/her driver's license having been revoked?

14.  Is the house full of trash?

15.  Has he/she been diagnosed with a illness?

WHAT TO DO NEXT:


1.   Find out if there is an Advance Health Care Directive or Power of Attorney in place.  If you question capacity, an opinion of a physician is always helpful.
2.   Call our office at 818.340.4479 and ask for a call assessment regarding your case or to petition to appoint a conservator.
3.   Ask us to give you a Capacity Declaration to be completed by a physician.   If your loved one will not submit to a doctor's examination, please call us.
4.   Gather a list of medications and assets of your loved one.
