Guardian abuse of seniors, their families and estates is a problem, which authorities have denied for decades. Private guardians are hired when a family has issues of dysfunction, the senior has no one to help them or the court decides a private guardian is needed.
The power a guardian has over a senior is stronger than the power of a doctor, attorney, real estate broker or financial planner. All of the professions are heavily regulated. Professionals in the above industries undergo numerous tests, recertification exams and countless hours of continuous education.
Private guardians do not have to qualify for high standards of conduct. Private guardians are not required to attend or graduate from college, have training in psychology or family therapy or even understand basic financial planning. This results in the lowest types of individuals entering into this profession. Guardianship in America is just like the wild west.
