Ms. Janet Phelan comes along with another article which risks making Probate more of a system to the gulag for the elderly than it already is:
I hope someone stops this before it happens, and if it does, I hope a brave lawyer comes forward to stop the sharing of this information before the GAL/probate systems uses it to generate even more guardianships where they were not needed before all of this.
Write your representatives and stop this before it is too late. It is clearly an invasion of privacy. It is a misuse and abuse of governmental authority to send others indicators of dementia and fraility of the elderly to those who might most abuse them. Judges and attys acting badly in our nation’s probate system. We have already enough senior citizens in nursing homes, against their will, that want to go home, while the probate machines burn up their dollars in dangerous and life shortening nursing homes. This “nursing home” machine is a nationwide tragedy. Many other countries would find it shameful to lock away seniors and isolate their elderly –except if they pay $150 per hour or more to get “court supervision” for a single visit.
Thanks Janet for sharing.
