Frank Fritz’s Initial Care Plans Require Big Changes To His Farmhouse

Frank is currently being cared for by his temporary guardian and is under conservatorship.

As per the court documents obtained by The Sun on October 18, the guardian needs to follow the Initial Care Plan. The documents mandate that the house should have handles and ramps throughout the area including the toilet and shower to ensure the mobility of the patient. So, the guardian is currently getting the house ready for when Frank is released from rehab.

Court Confirms Frank’s Decision-Making Capacity Is Impaired

The Frank Fritz Finds owner bought his $155,000 farmhouse back on May 14, 2010. The property also has a barn, shed, and warehouse that is used to store his motorcycle collection.

The temporary conservatorship and guardianship documents from the court read:

“Because of his stroke, Mr. Fritz’s decision­-making capacity is so impaired that he is unable to care for his own safety, or to provide for necessities such as food, shelter, clothing, or medical care without which physical injury or illness may occur.”

A doctor also provided details of Frank’s health concerning his decision-making capacity. As per the legal papers, “Mr. Fritz’s decision­ making capacity is so impaired that he is unable to make, communicate, or carry out important decisions concerning his own financial affairs.”

So, the court mandated that decisions will have to be made for him while he continues to recover and receive treatment for his injuries. The documents also confirmed that the appointment of a conservator and guardian is necessary to avoid any immediate harm to the reality star.

Frank Fritz’s Conservator Will Handle His Financial Affairs

While Frank’s long-time friend is his guardian, a bank is currently serving as his conservator to handle his financial affairs. Both the conservator and the guardian were approved by the court earlier this month.
