Conway’s daughter Kelly has gone to court in an attempt to become her father’s conservator so she can make medical decisions for him, The Blast reports. In court papers, she said that Conway is “almost entirely unresponsive.”
Kelly Conway, 56, alleges that the comedian’s wife, Charlene, is attempting to have him moved from the skilled nursing facility where he has access to registered nurses at all times to another facility that has a lower level of care, The Blast said.
Kelly Conway said her father cannot “properly provide for his personal needs for physical health, food, and clothing,” according to People. She is seeking guardianship so she can administer her father’s medications.
