A "Professional Fiduciary" is someone who accepts responsibility for taking care of the personal and/or financial needs of a person that is unable to do so for themselves. Trust is a crucial element when the person receiving the services is vulnerable, frail and incapacitated. A "Professional Fiduciary" is not a caregiver, but manages and oversees the care being provided.
A "Professional Fiduciary" is certified by the state(s); State and Federal law govern the professional fiduciaries. Services are provided for an hourly fee. Each Fiduciary has their own fee schedule which will be provided to a potential client.
