or even asked if I needed one. He just made this determination by speaking to my
Many people with dementia lose their financial right to take care
of their financials and judges make decision without even speaking to the
person living with the disease. That must change. That happened to me and

While I am unsure how to tackle this yet I need to know more. Unfortunately,
there is not really a board that oversees state judges. They are all members of the bar, but that is
for lawyers generally and not judges specifically. This issue may be for a legislator to
consider rather than for a judge. I am just exploring for now.
