The abuse of Gisela Riordan.

Gisela Riordan has been isolated for over two years. The public guardian allows no visitors or phone calls.

Department of Social Services determined there was no violation of Gisela’s rights to visitation or phone calls. The Santa Clara County Public Guardian states they have the right to deny all visitation to their conservatees. Will Lightbourne, state Director of Department of Social Services also stated that Public Guardians have the right to deny all visitation. That practice is in violation of California Probate Code and California Penal Code.

Chris Murphy

Chris Murphy holds a Master of Science degree in Gerontology from San Diego State University, a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Arts from CSU Long Beach, and a Master of Science degree in Acquisition Management from West Coast University.

In 2001, she placed her mother in a local assisted living facility; the experiences of both her mother and herself were the genesis of her interest in, and passion for residential care advocacy. Since 2007, she holds a RCFE Administrator’s Certificate.

Her thesis “An Exposition of Irregularities in Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs) in San Diego and Imperial Counties,” (Montezuma Publishing, SDSU, 2010), is based on original research conducted from the public files of 354 RCFEs located in San Diego and Imperial counties. While working on her thesis, she and another like-minded graduate student founded Consumer Advocates for RCFE Reform (CARR), a 501(c) organization offering consumer-based advocacy and information about assisted living in California for the purpose of allowing consumers to make informed placement decisions. CARR’s website offers free access to public documents and regulatory compliance histories for approximately 700+ RCFEs located in San Diego and Imperial counties.

CARR is fueled by passion and private donations to continue its work.
