The guardian of the person is responsible for custody of the individual. They arrange for care, professional services, and educational needs. The guardian of the person must petition the court for an order to have the estate guardian pay for these
needs. The guardian of the person must file reports with the court. "Personal guardian" and "conservator of the person" mean the same thing as "guardian of the person".
