Yes. There are a variety of different types of conservatorships. (1) General Conservatorship (continues indefinitely until the Consevatee either passes away or the Court terminates it); (2) Limited Conservatorship (specifically for individuals who are developmentally disabled); (3) LPS Conseratorship (Petition must be filed by a medical professional and the conservatorship only lasts one year without a Court Order extending it for another year).
