52. What is the difference between general and limited conservatorship?

A general conservatorship is usually intended for an adult who is declining in their ability to make personal or financial decisions, such as an elderly person or an adult who suffered a serious head injury. A limited conservatorship is usually intended for an adult whose disability started before they turned 18. Limited conservatorship is designed to promote as much self-sufficiency for the conservatee as reasonably possible.
