Description

The reporters investigated California's broken system for protecting incapacitated adults. Roughly 500 professional conservators operate in California, entrusted to take care of at least 4,600 of the state's most vulnerable adults. They hold sweeping power, controlling their wards' property and money as well as the smallest details of their lives. A system meant to protect the elderly often fails them.
