Alternatives to Conservatorship: The Role of Daily Money Management Services.
Wilber, Kathleen H.
Gerontologist, v31 n2 p150-55 Apr 1991
Tested hypothesis that daily money management services divert vulnerable elders from conservatorship. Assigned community-residing elders (n=63) to money management service or screening by Office of the Public Guardian or Adult Protective Services. Found no difference in rates of conservatorship for those offered money management service. Appointment to conservatorship was associated with cognitive impairment and psychiatric symptom severity.
