The Government Accounting Office(GAO) studied guardianship services around the USA and found that elders are abused at times by their court appointed guardian..Evidently, courts...FOR MORE CLICK TITLE... are not effectively screening potential guardians, providing ineffective oversight for guardians, allowing abuse to continue and, not communicating with other agencies about the abuse and/or the guardians. This study(Cases of Financial Exploitation, Neglect and Abuse of Seniors) was conducted in four States(Illinois, Nevada,  New York, North Carolina).
