From Ken Ditkowsky–On Guardianship Limitations

Tim – lets go a step further.   A guardian is a fiduciary.   A fiduciary owes the highest standard of conduct to his/her ward.   This is an onerous responsibility and it prohibits the guardian from profiting from his/her position directly or indirectly. The compensation that the guardians is based upon a reasonable and necessary standard and is limited by the reasonable charges that would be charged in the community, the value of the service to the ward etc.
The appointment of a guardian is strictly regulated by STATE statute.   In Illinois the statute provides:
   (755 ILCS 5/11a-3)   (from Ch. 110 1/2, par. 11a-3)  
     Sec. 11a-3.  Adjudication of disability; Power to appoint guardian. 
     (a) Upon the filing of a petition by a reputable person or by the alleged person with a disability himself or on its own motion, the court may adjudge a person to be a person with a disability, but only if it has been demonstrated by clear and convincing evidence that the person is a person with a disability as defined in Section 11a-2. If the court adjudges a person to be a person with a disability, the court may appoint (1) a guardian of his person, if it has been demonstrated by clear and convincing evidence that because of his disability he lacks sufficient understanding or capacity to make or communicate responsible decisions concerning the care of his person, or (2) a guardian of his estate, if it has been demonstrated by clear and convincing evidence that because of his disability he is unable to manage his estate or financial affairs, or (3) a guardian of his person and of his estate.  
     ( b) Guardianship shall be utilized only as is necessary to promote the well-being of the person with a disability, to protect him from neglect, exploitation, or abuse, and to encourage development of his maximum self-reliance and independence. Guardianship shall be ordered only to the extent necessitated by the individual's actual mental, physical and adaptive limitations.  
(Source: P.A. 99-143, eff. 7-27-15.)
The guardianship situation is strictly limited – it is intended to be a reasonable accommodation so that a ward can enjoy the fruits of his/her American citizenship even though he/she may have some limitations.
To illustrate the problem all we have to do is look to the Mary Sykes case -00 P 4585.   Therein, the only reason for the guardianship was to stop Mary Sykes from obtaining an order of protection against the person who became her guardian.   Judge Connors was so anxious to appoint a guardian that on page 91 she admitted that she was wired, and a review of the Court file demonstrates that the due process efforts required by statue 755 ILCS 5/11a – 10 (jurisdictional) were totally ignored.    The videos that are stored on the MaryGSykes blog demonstrate that Mary Sykes was not incompetent – the appointment was PUNITIVE.
This is also the problem in your case.    In the Alice Gore case, after Bev was removed, the object was pure avarice.    In the Carol Wyman case, it appeared to be substitute for a divorce *****
The attempts by the 2nd oldest professional to rationalize the gulag and American Holocaust are lame.   The attitude of our elected officials and the Political and Judicial Elite is reprehensible and destructive of the very values that they each took an oath to protect.
The Illinois statute’s limitation is echoed in just about every state, and ignored in just about every state –
 

        (b) Guardianship shall be utilized only as is necessary to promote the well-being of the person with a disability, to protect him from neglect, exploitation, or abuse, and to encourage development of his maximum self-reliance and independence. Guardianship shall be ordered only to the extent necessitated by the individual's actual mental, physical and adaptive limitations.  
(Source: P.A. 99-143, eff. 7-27-15.)

 
The profits both financial and politically from the abuse of guardianship are massive.    Here in Illinois the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission has been delegated the task of protecting the corrupt judges, miscreant lawyers, and other pernicious judicial and political criminals who are making billions of dollars by their elder cleansing activities.    The recent charges that the Justice Department bought against Philip Esformes in relation to his 30 nursing homes in South Florida are the tip of iceberg —  A billion dollars is alleged to have been stolen from Medicare!     Herein Illinois with about 300 nursing homes and the aid of Jerome Larkin only the good lord knows how much tax payers money is being stolen from Medicare.
