For corrupt guardianships, it's déjà vu all over again
Garden City Park, NY: Being that June is Elder Abuse Awareness Month and the month is almost over, we were shocked to see a TV news report from back in 2001 about the all-too-real phenomenon of court-appointed probate guardianship and its damaging effects upon the elderly and their family members.
Seventeen years later, as observed by Dr. Sam Sugar in his new book Guardianships and the Elderly: The Perfect Crime (Square One, $19.95 USD, ISBN: 978-0-7570-0433-9), the corruption at the center of this terrible situation continues to fester and rot in courthouses all over the US.

Dr. Sam Sugar, who is also founder and president of American Against Abusive Probate Guardianship (AAAPG), is featured in the recent article "Guardians from Hell" from Tablet Magazine by reporter Gretchen Rachel Hammond.
Guardianships and the Elderly is now available on Amazon.com, or wherever else books are sold.
