Guardianship and conservatorship; periodic review hearings. Requires a schedule for periodic review hearings in the order of appointment of a guardian or conservator to be set by a court, unless the court makes a determination that such hearings are unnecessary or impracticable. The bill allows any person to petition the court to hold a review hearing earlier than the scheduled date. The bill further provides that any periodic review hearing shall include the following assessments by the court: (i) whether the guardian or conservator is fulfilling his duties and (ii) whether continuation of the guardianship or conservatorship is necessary and, if so, whether the scope of such guardianship or conservatorship warrants modification.
