Five social workers in the Los Angeles public guardian's office control the lives of 1,000 elderly people. The office also controls $200 million in assets and has run a hardware store, a plant nursery and an oil-drilling operation owned by its wards. It is the largest and one of the oldest public guardianship offices in the country, and its critics say it now turns away cases and favors moneyed wards over the indigent. Both criticisms are true to some extent, the public guardian says.
