Many have heard of conservatorships recently by way of Britney Spears or the Golden Globe winning Netflix film, I Care a Lot. One year in the making, this ABC10 Originals five-part series, “Price of Care: Investigating California Conservatorships,” by investigative reporter Andie Judson, dives into the systemic issues of fiduciaries and conservatorships in California and what's being done to regulate this $13-billion-dollar industry.

In this series, Judson explores how a powerful industry created to assist those who cannot care for themselves -- granting them power over choosing what people can eat, who they see, where they live, as well as their money and assets -- has little oversight from state regulators, and how many believe this opens the door to some benefiting themselves rather than the person their supposed to care for, typically an elderly person under conservatorship.
