The petition shall include:

If the proposed conservator is under contract with the Kansas guardianship program, the petition shall state that fact;
(d) a request that the court make a determination that there is a need for the appointment of a conservator and that the court appoint a conservator;
(e) the names and addresses of the relatives nearest in kinship to the person;
