I have dementia and have suffered from two strokes. I am also a veteran (but served during a non wartime ) . I had a lawyer draw up a durable power of attorney set up with my daughter (no blood relation) as power of attorney and my niece as a secondary. Now Aging and Adult services has without notice taken over temporary conservatorship. They want to sell all of my real and personal property and place me into a home. I do not want this I want my daughter to stay in effect . I want to know how they are allowed to do this against my will? I did what I was supposed to do by preparing for this by having the legal paperwork already drawn up stating what I wanted! Basically the paperwork means crap and they are going to steal my money and throw me away into a home! My daughter takes excellent care of me and doesn't do anything before she discusses it with me and I tell her how I want it handled . Kern County Aging and Adult services are thieves. Where are my rights? Who do I get elderly protection from when I need to be protected from Aging and Adult protective services? I have worked hard my whole life to pay for everything I have including property , and now its going to be stolen by the county? Are there not laws that protect me from this?
