Right to Be Safe vs Right to Take Risks
for People Under Guardianship and Conservatorship

How far do the responsibilities granted to a guardian or conservator extend into the daily lives of wards/protected persons? Conflict or confusion between persons and their guardians/conservators, and residential and care providers can quickly emerge as each entity may view the issues of right to self-determinization, the dignity of risk, and the need for protection very differently.  This session will discuss these competing ethical values, provide practical and legal perspectives about self-determination and the right to take risks vs. the right to be safe conundrum.

At the conclusion of the presentation, participants will be able to:
  • List powers and duties of granted to guardians/conservators
  • Understand rights retained by persons under guardianship/conservatorship
  • Describe the tension between decision maker and provider needs for safety and quality of life and desires of the person served from legal, ethical, and practical perspectives.
