Is it difficult to remove a Guardian or power of attorney? Say your e.g. An elderly person with disabilities developed due to old age e.g. Dementia,or heart conditions, or hip replacement, and you need a Guardian or a power of attorney. Is it very difficult to remove an existing guardian/power of attorney? Do you have a lot of rights in being able to choose another one, if someone deemed appropriate or responsible is willing to do it? And will you usually be successful if you want an Independent financial manager, or the public trustee to manage your financial affairs, not say a family member for example?
