Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dubuque County, Monica Zrinyi Wittig, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, P.J.  (11 pages)

            B.Z. appeals the district court’s ruling appointing her daughter as her guardian and conservator.  She asserts the district court erred in finding her decision-making capacity is so impaired that she is unable to care for her physical and financial health.  In addition, she asserts the district court erred by not considering whether third-party assistance was available to her.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude there is substantial evidence to support the court’s decisions and that the court did not have to address third-party assistance in this circumstance.  For these reasons, we affirm.
