Conservatorship Association of Tennessee (CAT)
The Conservatorship Association of Tennessee as an affiliate of the National Guardianship Association promotes a nationally recognized standard of excellence in conservatorship and believes that:
“Good Guardians make Good Guardianships”
CAT is a membership organization of people who are concerned about the quality of services for the increasing number of vulnerable Tennesseans who need assistance in decision-making. Membership is open to conservators, guardians, attorneys, representative payees, advocates, family members, judges, magistrates, physicians, social workers, case managers and anyone else interested in improving the lives of Tennesseans who may need conservatorship or guardianship services.
Guardianship is now called Conservatorship in Tennessee for persons 18 years or older. For minors the term Guardianship remains. Conservatorship is a legal process by which a court determines that a person cannot make decisions about some or all areas of life. A Conservator in Tennessee can be a person, institution, or agency appointed by a court to manage the affairs of another. Your local court will be able to direct you to the divisions that handle conservatorships.
