It’s alarmingly easy for a total stranger to gain total control over the life of a senior citizen. We enlisted a group of celebrities to offer a warning about predatory a legal guardian or a hippo.

I watch this Netflix special and I have to tell you I was crying my eyes out I have never heard of this.. I couldn't even believe what was happening at all.. and whoever that one lady was with the dumb smirk on her ugly mouth I wanted to jump in the screen and punch her lights out she was so evil.. the man's money who she took and said he was incompetent on the business lived in a very nice house with a woman that he's been with for 10 years they had an adult daughter and the man loved his business and all his race cars if anybody has not seen this episode you should watch it it was very enlightening I had no idea anything like this was even going on.... thank goodness I have 2 . Beautiful grown children. . This looks so unethical.. the other guy was in Massachusetts and on five homes they tore his home down to build different property and left a man with nothing... that doesn't sound like a guardianship to me.. evil nasty greedy people that will go to hell. . Supposed to help people not hurt them

Don't get it twisted, this isn't just an ageism issue, it's an ableism issue. It exploits the vulnerability of disabled people and twists it into a justification for that very exploitation. The elderly people being exploited here are all being exploited because of a disability.

Guardianship is a scam. Theses people take over everything. They can sell your home, cars, take over your assets and nothing is done to them. They get attorneys and the elderly pays for it all.

my grandma had ALS, and was appointed a guardian, as my mother couldn't care for her. my grandmother had quite a lot of money, and her guardian did not notify the family of her passing until THREE SEPARATE FAMILY MEMBERS felt that something was amiss and went to check up on her, only to find out that she had DIED two months prior. he had spent quite a lot of her money before the family found out. this was some time before i was born, but hearing about all the things that guardians and caretakers do to their charges, i would never trust a caretaker or a guardian with ANYONE in my family, and i myself plan on filing an advance care directive to ensure that i never find myself falling into the gnarled hands of the guardian/caretaker system.

I'm going to own a shotgun in my old age so if somebody shows up at my door and declares they are my guardian, they can either walk away, or I can put them in the ground and live the rest of my life in prison where I can live out my days on the government dime and whatever money I have left can go into my commissary account to pay for my Dr. Peppers.

I’m suffering the same thing too- the guardianship. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) think that I can’t understand how Money works and took my rights away. My mom is a good person. but I always have to ask her for stuff because she has my money. She is my guardian for half of the things that I don’t understand like health. I don’t sign things without my mom being there.

My mom told me that her friend had a guardian who buys all of the foods (that she can’t have) for $200.00 and left the disability person to starve. And bullied her to not telling anyone about it. The guardian got fired and has to pay $200.00 back.

@Ian Ward I don't really get your point. Being old in and of itself is not a disability, yes, but disabilities tend to come with old age.
Ian Ward
Ian Ward 21 день назад
Being old isn't a disability though...however you wanna frame it, many of the medical conditions seniors face are little more than a circumstance of age, and to a lesser extent (as far as the relevance to their daily quality of life is concerned) genetics. Most healthy adults will become senior citizens, and some do experience disabilities like blindness and deafness from a variety of causes but the way the system is currently set up having any ill health in the least can be twisted and manipulated into justification for assuming control of your assets and agency over your entire existence...apparently by strangers, no less...

Who is here watching this video in 2020 because a certain blonde popstar, struggling with a range of issues, is under the dark cloud of her *conservatorship*!? I wonder if #johnoliver #lastweektonight is going to update this video with more current information.

One thing that really should have been mentioned more- it’s not just the elderly. It’s also people with mental disabilities- either a cognitive disability or a mental illness. It can happen to a HUGE proportion of the population. From the age of 18. So you could for example, have your father become your legal guardian (also known as conservator in some states), and take over your entire life, after you’ve had a mental breakdown, after being worked to the bone since you were five, and have paparazzi be so incredibly nasty, by flying choppers around your house to try to get a nude photo, get that photo, and then call you fat and ugly even though you just had two babies less than two years ago. Yes, I’m talking about Britney Spears, #FreeBritney. She’s given a very small amount to live on, in comparison with her huge wealth, and has only a small amount of time with her children, mostly because their dad filed a restraining order against her father, her conservator, for being violent with the boys. She can’t drive, can’t vote, isn’t allowed to speak publicly about anything about the conservatorship, and if she does, she’s forcefully dragged to a mental facility against her will. The reason they gave? Well, at the end of 2008, Jamie Spears field for a permanent conservatorship, on the basis that Britney was diagnosed with Early Onset Dementia. Funny how since then, she’s done a stint in Las Vegas for four years (which is a huge amount of work), released four albums, done four work tours, and still stings and dances- all things you’d expect would be impossible for someone with her “diagnosis”. She shows no signs of dementia. But her dad gets to control her $250 million net worth, and is kept fat and happy on all her money. And if this can happen to one of the most famous people in the world, if even she can’t get out of it, even though she CLEARLY has the capacity to work extremely hard, what chance do the rest of us have? So yes, it’s a big elder abuse issue. It’s also a disability rights issue. Britney had a very understandable breakdown 12 years ago. Why is she being punished for that? Again, #FreeBritney , because freeing Britney might also help to free others.

slitor why wouldn’t you? I may not enjoy her music much (in fact, I loathe it), but she seems to be a pretty decent person, with a pretty hard life. Her parents used her as a money mine from a really early age, and her continues to do that to this day with the conservatorship. She’s even only allowed 30% custody of her kids because their father took out a restraining order agonist her dad due to her dad being violent with the kids. He sounds like an awful person. Britney, she seems pretty decent.

As a social worker, I can confirm full guardianship should be a last resort. Getting a healthcare agent, representative payer, and attorney-in-fact would ensure your wishes are complied with. Fun fact: if someone says they are Power of Attorney, they actually mean they're the attorney-in-fact. Power of Attorney is the name of the legal document listing the AIF and their responsibilities. No one is actually a piece of paper, unless you identify as such.
