Forced Guardianships of the Vulnerable and the Elderly Must Stop

Another form of abuse and exploitation is the forced guardianships of the vulnerable and the elderly. Guardians and their attorneys routinely force their victims into nursing homes so they can sell off personal and real property converting to cash then bill, bill and over bill the estate. Many victims lose everything while the guardians and their attorneys enrich themselves with the assets. Victims are often isolated and neglected while being robbed of lifelong earnings. Robin Westmiller wrote "Blood Taste Lousy with Scotch", a book about guardian abuse that took place in the state of Florida. Please visit the National Association to Stop Guardian Abuse at http://www.stopguardianabuse,org/ for more information about guardianship abuse.
