Implementation of Recommended Guardianship Practices and Outcomes of Hearings for Older Persons.
Keith, Pat M.; Wacker, Robbyn R.
Gerontologist, v33 n1 p81-87 Feb 1993
Analyzed 1,160 court records to determine whether implementation of recommended procedural safeguards and guardianship practices was associated with outcomes of hearings for older adults. Presence of proposed ward at the hearing was not related to decisions about guardianship. Proposed wards who retained their own counsel were more likely to receive limited guardianship or have the petition denied. (Author/NB)
