here were some important changes in the California conservatorship law enacted by the Conservatorship Reform Act of 2006 that have recently taken effect. These changes will affect Conservators here in Alameda County and Contra Costa County.

Regarding moving a Conservatee, Conservators must give notice as follows:

  1. Notice Before Moving a Conservatee. Conservators planning to move a Conservatee from her/his personal residence must first give fifteen-days notice to all relatives within the first and second degree and anyone who requested special notice, before moving the Conservatee. Of course, if there is a medical emergency, the Conservatee can be moved without prior notice.
  2. Notice After the Conservatee is Moved. After the Conservatee is moved, a second notice, which states the new residence of the Conservatee, is required to be mailed to all relatives within the first and second degree.
