Welcome to CATENN

What is a Conservatorship?

CAT is a membership organization of people who are concerned about the quality of services for  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. 

Conservatorship is a legal concept in the United States. A guardian or a protector is appointed by a judge to manage the financial affairs and/or daily life of another due to physical or mental limitations, or old age.
