Son Nominated as Guardian Not Appointed

The incapacitated person’s son, who was nominated to be her guardian in her durable power of attorney, but the son had neglected and abused his mother, had failed to cooperate in making arrangements for her care, was more interested in preserving his mother’s home for himself than in qualifying her for Medicaid benefits, and had criminal convictions for both assault and murder, so good cause existed not to appoint him as her guardian. The court also rejected the son’s allegations of various procedural errors. Gladys DeAngelo, an Incapacitated Person, 11 Fid.Rep.3d 181 (Chester O.C. 2020), appeal dism’d, 3466 EDA 2019 (Pa. Super. 7/24/2020) (appeal was moot following the death of the incapacitated person).
