Protective Services Worker, Public Conservator - Department of Disability and Aging Services (DAS) Division

The Office of Conservatorship Services has an average caseload of 640, with approximately half of these individuals placed outside of San Francisco County in either locked psychiatric facilities or residential care homes. Therefore, travel is required in order to meet the needs of the conservatee and our service mandate by State and County regulations. The average number of miles driven per month is 350.

The 2940 is responsible for managing an independent caseload and is assigned mental health (LPS) conservatorship investigations as well. This involves interaction with Mental Health Court, including Public Defender and District Attorney, Department of Public Health, hospitals, jails and community agencies. In addition to assessments and making recommendations for levels of care, the conservator is also responsible for advocating these recommendations, which may at time be at conflict with the interests of other stakeholders. Basic computer skills are required to perform charting on electronic systems (Avatar and Panoramic), emailing (the bulk of inter and intra agency communication is done through e-mail).
