No, my sister does not, to my knowledge, have guardianship. My mother fell, when not wearing her life alert, on Christmas day. Ended up in the hospital when discovered 12 hours later. I picked her up upon her release (12/28) and she stayed with me until 1/10/13. I had, previous to her fall, purchased a plane ticket for her to visit my sister in FL for Jan. 10. My husband ended up having to accompany her on the trip.
According to the hospital that released her, she is competent to make her own decisions. However, my siblings decided for her that she could not live alone any longer. I felt, that with some help she could stay in her apartment, which was what she wanted to do. I was over-ruled.
She is on aricept, and does have some memory issues, but I would not call them extraordinary.
