The Seniors Center Blog: legal guardianships steal more than just seniors’ dignity

What should be a last resort protective measure to provide assistance to seniors struggling to care for themselves is in reality an unfair and predatory system propped up by the courts and designed to line the pockets of so-called “guardians.”

The senior guardianship is often far from what it claims to be, stripping seniors of their independence, their dignity, their control of their assets and finances, and even their ability to make important medical decisions and see their families.

What’s worse?  A court can approve all of this without a senior even knowing it’s happening.

This newest post at The Seniors Center Blog gives a harrowing account of what happens once a court-appointed guardian takes over the life of a senior.
