Thank you for your question. If your stepfather is being isolated against his will (or if he is unable to express his wishes due to dementia) this can investigated for potential elder abuse. Are you concerned that your stepfather's well being is in jeopardy? If so the state can and will investigate the situation. The court has the ability to appoint a new guardian or your stepfather could become a ward of the state. I understand your concern.
