May legally petition to manage the assets of some residents who:
1) die without a will or trust or
2) have no other person able to act to administer the estate
May also assist with someone’s final wishes. If a person leaves clear instructions and have money to pay for the burial or cremation they wanted, staff can make those arrangements. If the person doesn't leave instructions and funds for burial, staff can ask the coroner to provide a free cremation through the indigent burial program.
