Lillie has been isolated for 1,010 days--almost THREE YEARS. Help free her.
Guardianship laws intended to protect the vulnerable are used to entrap unsuspecting people to control their property. How does this come about? Elder Dignity has created a one-page framework outlining the process and key actions predators takes to steal your estate, as well as a template for case studies.
In 2012, Lillie was independently living her retirement in Palm Coast, Florida. Suddenly, through the actions of a predator, she was entrapped in on involuntary guardianship. Now, she has been isolated in an institution for over 1,010 days--almost THREE YEARS--while her estate is spent down.
Lawmakers know the adult guardianship system is broken. As many states work to reform their guardianship statutes, the federal government has begun to strengthen protection for seniors. Understand the current landscape of legislation and then join in overhauling the system so your family is not next.
The Deception of Protection
In conjunction with World Elder Abuse Awareness Day activities during June 2019, Elder Dignity will be releasing its newest video, The Deception of Protection. Produced by Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy, the 22-minute piece provides a primer on adult guardianship exploitation in the U.S. It features two of the most prominent advocates, Rick Black and Dr. Sam Sugar, as well as families of victims across America highlighting the fact that this crime IS real. It also provides preemptive measures so you can protect yourself and survival tactics if you get entrapped.
Stay tuned for the release.

Why Elder Dignity?
To be an ELDER is a privilege, not a "condition" causing you to be tossed aside and abused. If we are lucky, each of us will get old. Let's create a society where we can age with dignity and respect, and ensure that our individual rights and assets are protected. It's time to reform the Elder Guardianship System in the U.S., prosecute predators and hold legal agents--judges, attorneys, evaluators, professional guardians-- to a higher standard.
