Indigent Guardianship / Conservatorship Program

Adult Protective Services regularly looks to GTC to serve as guardian and conservator for wards of the court who have been abused, neglected or exploited and have nowhere else to turn.The person becomes a ward of the court after a hearing in which the court determines that the person lacks the capacity for decision-making and self-care. This person may have experienced medical or physical trauma, abuse, or neglect; may have no family members; and may have been financially victimized as well.   We provide assistance with living and daytime care arrangements, review and consent for medical treatment, financial management, benefits processing, legal representation, and other matters essential to the best outcome for each client. Our goal is to maximize all financial resources to enable the client to live safely in the least restrictive environment possible. We also serve wards of the court who are able to pay for the professional services rendered. Conservatorship fees cannot be collected until approved by the Probate Court Judge.

We serve as fiduciary over trusts set up for the benefit of persons with mental and/or physical disabilities. These can be Trusts Under Will or Living Trusts, most of which are Special or Supplemental Needs Trusts. We also offer a Pooled Trust, which have lower costs than separately managed trusts but offer the same benefits, while combining participants' funds for investments that benefit all trust participants proportionately. Proper management of the trust ensures that the beneficiary does not lose access to any applicable means-tested government benefits like SSI or state Medicaid. GTC has more than thirty years' experience administering trusts under these complicated benefits programs. GTC relies on the investment advice of its Trusts and Investments committee, comprised of GTC directors drawn from local banks, trusts and investment firms.
