Letters to Editor - Guardianship Matters

by Dee King

DID YOU KNOW: If you are elderly or disabled, you may have someone think it would be in your best interest to have you "conserved"What does that mean?

It means a probate court can have you declared incompetent and appoint someone to take over every aspect of your life and decide where you will live, how they will spend your money, who you will be allowed to see, if you must be medicated, if you will be placed in a nursing home,if your house will be sold and more.Enough!!

Well we have united to educate the public and form a petition to tell the legislators we DO NOT want our freedom taken from us.

We DO NOT want the government, local, state or federal to tell us how, where and why we must live as a stranger dictates.We demand the same liberty that we fight for in other countries be given in America,We have come to know there are many injustices and outright unlawful acts against the elderly and disabled population and we have come to demand those rights be upheld as given in the Constitution of the United States of America!!!
