If my uncle is in hospice, is there a fast way to get conservatorship before he dies?

How can I go about it all? He has no family and no one over his estate. He he is incompetent to sign any documents and its any day now the doctors said.

Given what you have written about I suggest that you consult with a Wills and trust attorney about a possible conservatorship. The problem that I see is that if he soon will be passing is that you will not have enough time to file a petition for the desired conservatorship.
